Redwood City Creates a Model for Expanded Learning
Beginning in the 2021-2022 school year, California began providing more funding for expanded learning opportunities such as after school and summer enrichment programs to help students through sixth grade develop their academic, social, emotional, and physical skills and interests. This additional funding allowed school districts in San Mateo County, such as the Redwood City School District (RCSD), to collaborate with community partners in offering unique, hands-on, engaging learning experiences that complement classroom learning.
