21st Century After School Safety and Enrichment for Teens
The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) partners with school districts and charter schools across the county in the implementation of the High School After School Safety and Enrichment for Teens (ASSETs) grant.
Forty-one local high school campuses have created site-specific programs that include tutoring, homework assistance, California High School Exit Exam and college and career prep courses, visual and performing arts, youth leadership, service learning, and physical activity. In addition, the grant will offer family literacy and educational services to support parents of students in the program. Regular participation in high-quality after school programs is linked to gains in student achievement, increased regular-day attendance, a reduction in behavior problems and increased graduation rates.
