Just Released! Technical Assistance for Expanded Learning Opportunities in California
The After School Division (ASD) of the California Department of Education in collaboration with Public Profit, released a new report: Technical Assistance  for Expanded Learning Opportunities in California. This report shares high-level information about the availability of technical assistance (TA) by region, strategy, and links to Quality Standards for Expanded Learning. Regional Profiles provide at-a-glance information about providers in each of California’s 11 regions. This report will help to inform the ongoing conversations about how to support high quality Expanded Learning opportunities in California for all youth.  California is a national leader in Expanded Learning, both for the breadth of its publicly funded Expanded Learning programs and for its growing focus on quality. The ASD is further enhancing its supports for program quality through the System of Support, including funding for TA. Understanding the current TA landscape enhances the ASD’s ability to make strategic investments to support Expanded Learning opportunities

TA Landscape Advisory Group (Co-Led)

Objective 1.1.2 This group served as an ad hoc advisory group to Public Profit. Public Profit, led by Corey Newhouse, was contracted by the After School Division through funding support from David and Lucile Packard Foundation. They were tasked to develop a Technical Assistance (TA) Landscape Analysis of the TA that is provided to California Expanded Learning programs. This serves as crucial preparatory work to support the work of Objective 1.1.2. This group began meeting in late October 2014 to assist Public Profit in developing the format of the TA Landscape Analysis, the Data Collection Tools/Plan and a Communications Plan. From January-March 2015 Public Profit conducted 2 rounds of data collection via surveys, asking TA Providers working with Expanded Learning programs in California to report on organization and service level details. 110 respondents completed the survey and the results were compiled into the above report that includes overall summary findings as well as regional profiles for each of the eleven regions.
