California’s newly approved budget failed to include additional funding for after school programs in its $171 billion dollar spending plan. As a result, elementary school grants will remain at $112,500 annually and middle schools will continue to receive $150,000 annually through the state's After-School Education and Safety (ASES) program. Under the program, schools are required to provide a 33 percent local match and are reimbursed at a daily rate of $7.50 per student. Advocates had hoped for a higher reimbursement rate that would include an additional 1 dollar per student.
