Enrollment Now Open for After-School Professional Development Conference
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Joe Picard, Regional and Continuing Education
The conference will provide K-8 after-school program paraprofessionals and frontline staff the opportunity to explore ways to develop and improve their programs.
“After-school programs provide students the time and attention they need to be successful in school and create valuable enrichment experiences that enhance the students’ education. This conference is all about sharing ideas and identifying the tools necessary to run a successful program,” remarked Amy Christianson, program coordinator, Butte County Office of Education.
Through keynote presentations and conference sessions, participants will discover how to implement varied curriculum, facilitate experiential learning and provide a more positive environment for children.
The After School Program Conference is a response to the State of California’s $550 million funding for After School Safety and Education (ASES) Programs in accordance with Proposition 49 and the consequent statewide demand for qualified, well-prepared after-school program staff and the growth in new after-school programs made possible by this funding.
