Expanded Learning Program

Kids Club and Panther Club  


The Expanded Learning Opportunity Program is part of the Pleasanton Unified School District and is administered by the Student Support Services Department. Kids Club/Panther Club are the Expanded Learning Programs in PUSD. The Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P) provides funding from the California Department of Education for after school and summer school enrichment programs for transitional kindergarten through sixth grade.

“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 in the regular school day and school year.
