Enrichment Programs for Kids
When the school day ends,
the fun begins
Founded in 2022 to address the growing need for academic support in our community. We specialize in on-site ELOP programs for Pre-Kindergarten-6th grade. At Raising Rainbows, we are prepared to support district plans to maximize equity and access opportunities at your schools immediately, with the option of a phased implementation as we build the capacity to serve additional students.
For information on eligibility, please visit IUSD's website. IUSD should also notify eligible families via email prior to the 2023-24 school year.
What is ELOP?
The Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELOP) Program is the result of the 2021–22 Budget Act and Assembly Bill (AB) 130, as amended by AB 167. Expanded learning means before school, after school, summer, or intersession learning programs that focus on developing the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs and interests of pupils through hands-on, engaging learning experiences. It is the intent of the Legislature that expanded learning programs are pupil-centered, results-driven, include community partners, and complement, but do not replicate, learning activities during the regular school day and school year.
Program requirements include providing no less than nine hours a day of programming when combined with in-person instructional time on all school days and nine hours a day of programming during 30 intersession days. Program standards are to be aligned with the After School Education & Safety (ASES) program, including educational enrichment and literacy activities, snacks/meals, a program plan with training, integration with the school day and other opportunities, community collaboration, physical activity, fiscal accountability, and data collection to support the quality improvement process that is reviewed every three years.
