Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP)

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.

Orcutt Union School District is pleased to announce opportunities for no cost child care and expanded learning for TK-6th grade students! New state funding (ELOP) will allow families that qualify to participate in the Campus Connection Program at no cost. This funding will also allow OUSD to enhance the experience for ALL students enrolled in the child care program.

The program is provided by our Campus Connection Staff and will be offered at all OUSD elementary school sites. A healthy meal(s), education, literacy, physical activities, and enrichment elements are all part of the program.

The primary goal of the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program in OUSD is academic support, enrichment, and connections for students beyond the regular school day.

We are asking all families to fill out the Free & Reduced Meal Application. By doing this, it benefits the district in multiple ways and your family could qualify for lower utilities, internet fees, and other benefits including the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP). To see if you quality, please click the appropriate link below and fill out the application.
