The vision of the After School Education and Safety (ASES) programs in Modesto City Schools is to motivate, encourage and empower our students, parents and staff members to recognize and achieve their full individual potential and become productive community members. The ASES program will provide students with academic and recreational enrichment activities in a safe environment. Youth will be encouraged to engage in a variety of opportunities in partnership with staff and parents to obtain the knowledge and skills they need to become outstanding citizens who contribute to the community in positive ways.
ASES provides a safe, secure environment for students TK-8 during after school hours until 6:00 p.m. (6:03 Jr. High). Students have the opportunity to receive homework assistance, as well as participate in extended learning activities, such as, art, music, fitness and wellness, science, and service learning.

The Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP) Plan as required by Education Code (EC) Section 46120(b)(2) will provide expanded program activities that support the whole child, and students’ Social and Emotional Learning and development before/after school and during winter, spring, and summer non-instructional school days for TK-8 students. This plan was approved the Local Educational Agency's (LEA) Governing Board.
Goal 1.4 Develop a Multi-Tiered System of Support for all students.
Goal 1.5 Ensure students have access to enrichment activities at all schools.
Students who participate in ASES have high levels of attendance during the school day.
Families attend special family nights about reading, math, or science, or a movie night.
ASES programs operate at 19 elementary school sites and four junior high schools and are open directly after school until 6:00 p.m. (6:03 for Jr. High) each school day. ASES does not operate during breaks or holidays, except for the following schools:
Bret Harte, Fairview, Franklin, Marshall, Robertson Road, Shackelford, Tuolumne, and Orville Wright schools which have a supplemental/summer program. Please check with the school for the days of operation for supplemental/summer program at these sites.
All students TK-8 enrolled at an ASES program site are eligible to attend. ASES is free to all participating families. At many program sites, demand exceeds capacity; therefore, families must comply with the attendance policy. Waiting lists are maintained and parents will be contacted when they have been selected for an available opening. Each ASES program enrolls its own students. Use the contact site number to inquire about enrollment information. You may also contact the Intervention Programs office at (209) 574-1608.
