BEFORE SCHOOL PROGRAMMING

SCUSD Youth Development Support Services recognizes the growing physical, intellectual, and social competence of the increasingly independent school-age child. Eager to achieve socially and academically while expanding their knowledge of the world, school-age children seek new challenges, close friendships, and increasing responsibilities.

 

Our programs offer engaging learning opportunities in a fun environment for maturing school-age children. This includes before-school expanded learning programs, designed specifically for elementary school age students, which provides them with age-appropriate activities in a safe and secure environment that allows children to be children.

The purpose of the Title VII Indian Education Formula Grant is to fulfill the Federal Government's unique and continuing trust relationship with and responsibility to the Indian people for the education of Indian children. The Federal Government will continue to work with local educational agencies (Sacramento City Unified School District)  toward the goal of ensuring that programs that serve Indian children are of the highest quality and provide for not only the basic elementary and secondary educational needs, but also the unique educational and culturally related academic needs of these children.
