CDE Region 3 After School Extended Learning and Development
After School Support for All Children and Youth

Welcome to the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) After School Expanded Learning and Development Web site.

SCOE is the after school technical assistance lead for Region 3, which serves the ten counties within the Capital Service region.  SCOE employs regional leads to carry out technical assistance to publicly funded after school programs serving children and youth in grades K-12.

As regional lead, SCOE works to ensure that after school programs in Region 3 provide high-quality programs that include academics, enrichment, and recreation based on a youth development perspective.  SCOE also provides technical assistance to after school organizations that have state or federally funded after school programs.  SCOE also collaborates with local and state after school organizations to provide training and resources for Region 3.

The California Department of Education (CDE) provides funding to select county offices of education in each of the eleven California County Superintendents Educational Services Association (CCSESA) regions to offer training and technical assistance to districts, county offices of education, and community-based organizations implementing the After School Education & Safety (ASES) program and 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC).

It is the objective of each regional lead to make sure that governmental, educational, and community organizations are aware of the importance of and effectively support after school initiatives – including outreach to school districts, city and county government, community-based organizations, the business community, community foundations, and colleges and universities.  CDE also supports after school programs to work with various collaboratives to ensure strong community support.  The goal is to help children and youth succeed in school and become capable, well-balanced citizens.

The regional lead is the first point of contact in accessing services to help make after school programs successful. The Regional Leads for Region 3 are Monica Gonzalez-Williams and Barbara Metzuk.
