After School special

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 6:26 am

Really quickly today, looks like the School Board will be considering a new vendor for elementary after school programs for the majority of sites with the exception of Ruby Bridges, Maya Lin, and Love.

A few slides to help set the context, what the district was seeking to do is to get proposals for vendors to administer the after school programs in Alameda regardless of funding mechanism. After discussions with site principals for ASES funded schools (eligible for Title 1 schools) they would retain their existing programs so the choice of vendor(s) would be limited to ELOP funded schools.

Staff is recommending that the contact be awarded to Right At School. It looks like, depending on the site and availability of space, there can be other options on site but the ability of Right At School to offer a fee based and handle the ELOP side as well makes it attractive because then there is no stigma attached for ELOP funded kids to use a specific type of after school service and the more fee paying families who sign up, the more robust the after school program can be:


  1. Wondering why they are changing vendors?

    In Minnesota, AG Garland just accused their school lunch provider with massive fraud by siphoning off $250 million during the pandemic -charging for meals that never went to any needy children and creating false rosters. The money was used to buy luxury cars, houses, jewelry and resort property abroad.

    • You forgot to mention fentanyl.

      Is everything ok?

    • That’s nothing. In East Buttfuck Arkansas, school lunch was being served by drag queens (who also happened to be illegal immigrants) and there were traces of Critical Race Theory in the french fries. Won’t anyone think of the children???

  2. One state out of 50, one district out of 50,000. You’re not a watchdog, you’re just a sensationalizing moron.

  3. How will this impact current community partners like AEF, AIK (Girls Inc) and AMP?

    • If the for-profit group, Right At School, is granted the contract, this will mean that groups like AIK and AEF will have 2nd priority at the school site. So if enough students sign up for Right At School’s program, there could potentially not be enough room for these other programs to be run on campus. Right At School has a very fancy website and I’m sure they made an impressive presentation to the district, but from what I’ve heard, they tend to over-promise and under-deliver.

  4. Information about the new, state-mandated “ELOP” afterschool program is available at As noted in that article, AUSD staff are recommending that we work with existing childcare providers at our sites to help them continue to run their programs next year.
