River Delta Unified School District offers an after-school enrichment program (Beyond the Bell) through ASES funding, with the purpose providing a safe and educational learning environment for all students at the end of the regular school day. The After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program is the result of the 2002 voter-approved initiative, Proposition 49.
The program begins at the end of the regular school day and continues until 6 p.m. every school day. Those students that participate in ASES receive a healthy dinner (“Linner”) and a snack every day. All ASES sites vary in their specific delivery model but all ASES programs must provide a nutritional daily snack, homework assistance, literacy support, a variety of enrichment activities and physical activities as well as to help students meet state standards in one or more of the core academic subjects. RDUSD currently operates the program at three elementary sites: Bates, Walnut Grove, and Isleton. They available for all students in grades K-6.
