Expanded Learning Program (after school)

The Expanded Learning Opportunities Program provides funding for afterschool and summer school enrichment programs with a focus on local educational agencies (LEAs) with the highest concentration of targeted disadvantaged students (English learners and students categorically eligible for free or reduced-price meals).

Please contact Director of Expanded Learning, Melody Washington, with any questions. [email protected] and (510) 225-9075.


At UMCS, ELO-P extends each school day to 6pm. We will have a spot for everyone. 

All families must fill out the Free/reduced lunch application especially if you would like to see if your student(s) can attend for no cost or reduced cost. Please complete and return the application to [email protected], or drop off/mail to the school. If your child is an English Learner or if you would like to register a foster or homeless child, they may attend for free. There is a $65 annual registration fee for those who are not eligible to attend for free. We provide a snack for all participating students, and you are welcome to send a snack with your student(s) if you prefer.


Additional Details:

  • Please let your children and their teachers know if they are staying after school, especially TK & K students.
  • Pick up:
    • Please pick up at the Mango gate. It will be locked, so please call (510) 225-9075 when you arrive or are on your way to pick up and we will bring your child/children to the gate.
    • Please pick up by 6 pm or you will be charged $2 for every minute you are late.
    • Please sign up for the "Brightwheel Parent Portal." Brightwheel assigns you a code to sign out. 
  • Invoices:
    • Invoices are sent from the Brightwheel app. Please register on the Brightwheel Parent Portal to choose a payment method and pay invoices.
    • There is a $65 registration fee that must be paid prior to the first day of program. Invoices for the registration fee will be sent digitally through the Brightwheel Parent Portal.
    • Monthly invoices will come at the end of the month and will be due by the 15th of the following month. Unpaid invoices after the 15th incur a 10% late fee.
    • Families on the 3 days per week plan who consistently attend more than 3 days per week, will be asked to change to the 5 days per week plan.
    • Drama and Chess and all other 3rd party programs will require an extra fee unless your family qualifies for free lunch. If your student(s) only want to attend these classes and not the after school program, the fee will be slightly higher.
