Learning Support Region 2

After School Training & Technical Assistance Program

Who We Are:
In California, CDE funding provides resources to each region to be administered by local county office of education designated as Regional Leads for afterschool. Regional Leads work to ensure that governmental, educational and community organizations are aware of the importance of and effectively support afterschool initiatives - including capacity building of funded schools to meet statutory requirements. Region 2 serves Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Plumas, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama and Trinity counties.

What We Do:

A key purpose of Regional Technical Assistance and Training is to provide assistance and support to after school programs through regional and local efforts - all with a focus on building effective and sustainable programs that meet the needs of children and young people.

In California, state funding provides resources in each of the state's 11 regions to support afterschool partnerships and programs through collaboration. Channeled through the California Department of Education, funds are administered by local county offices of education designated as Regional Leads for afterschool. The roles and responsibilities of Regional Leads are broad in scope.

Knowledgeable about programs and sites within their geographic areas, they identify and connect existing and new resources with afterschool programs, and develop and work closely with advisory committees that represent key stakeholder groups. They also organize conferences and workshops. Regional Leads also facilitate communications to help a region mobilize quickly and effectively on policy matters to bring about new resources and opportunities.

As rigorous research has shown, quality afterschool programs can have dramatic impacts on students' success and community support for schools. Programs that have committed, trained staff, and strong leadership offer academic, enriching and creative activities, coordinate with schools and the community, and meet their funding and staffing challenges to offer rich opportunities for kids, families and communities.

What Should I Expect?

Regional Leads help local programs network with one another and others to provide continuous learning opportunities - all with the goal of helping programs become increasingly able to diagnose their own needs and build their capacity for self-sufficiency.
