After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program
The After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program will open the first day of school and operates every school day through the last day of school. To comply with State and Federal grant requirements the ASES Program will commences immediately upon the conclusion of the regular school day and operates a minimum of 15 hours per week and at least until 6:00 PM on every regular school day. We pride ourselves in creating a safe, engaging, positive setting for our students. To get the most out of their time in the program, students need to attend each day and stay for the entire program.
Our mission is to provide a safe environment that fosters educational and enrichment opportunities for students.
Clovis Unified School District’s expanded learning program strive to be America’s benchmark for excellence.
Hours of Operation
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday
Participation in the program is at NO CHARGE to the family. According to AB1567, effective as of July 1, 2017, after school program priority enrollment to students are given to those that are identified by the program as homeless and foster youth. Students enrolled into program need to comply with the state guidelines of the program. Although, priority enrollment goes to homeless, foster youth and students who qualifies for Free and Reduce Price Meals (FRPM), there are other target groups and criteria that may vary depending on the need of the school site and their community. This year our ASES program is currently open to our students that are foster youth, homeless, qualifies for Free and Reduce Price Meals and at-risk students. We consult with our teachers, administrators, and/or other staff to get their feedback and input. Nelson is currently serving 2nd through 6th grade. If this shall change, we will update our Nelson learning community.
The ASES Program is an extension of the regular school day; however, it should not be a repeat of it. ASES provides a safe physical and emotional environment that offers and academic and enrichment elements.
- An educational and literacy element must provide an opportunity for homework assistance and intervention designed to help students meet state standards in one or more of the following core academic subjects: reading/language arts, mathematics, history and social studies, or science. A broad range of activities may be implemented based on local student needs and interests.
- The educational enrichment element must offer an array of additional services, programs, and activities that reinforce and complement the school’s academic program. Educational enrichment may include but is not limited to, positive youth development strategies, recreation and prevention activities. Such activities might involve the visual and performing arts, music, physical activity, health/nutrition promotion, and general recreation; career awareness and work preparation activities; community service-learning; and other youth development activities based on student needs and interests. Enrichment activities may be designed to enhance the core curriculum.
To get the most out of their time in the program, students need to attend each day and stay for the entire program. Staff and students alike are negatively impacted by early departures. In order for all students to get the most out of the academic support, enrichment classes, leadership activities and other program offerings. Early release should be kept to a minimum. In the event that student do need to be depart early, we do have an Early Release Policy set in place and may need documentations for frequent early release departure. Please see your ASES Site Coordinator for more information.
Participation in the ASES Program is a PRIVILEGE. Disruptive or disrespectful behavior toward other students and/or staff is reason for dismissal. ASES does not provide 1:1 tutoring as our ratio is 20 students to 1 adult.

Program goals and focus may change each year based on data we collect from local and state assessments as well as surveys from our stakeholders.
