On Jan. 25, all Apple Valley Unified School District A.S.E.S. program staff participated in a professional development training, in which they discussed the importance of after school programming and learned about the new procedures that will be implemented statewide to ensure the continuation of high-quality programs. The training session focused on Continuous Quality Improvement, and was facilitated by Jessica Hay and Zoila Couture of the California Afterschool Network. John Duran, Regional Lead with San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools, also attended the meeting.
“We are proud of the programming we are able to provide, and are constantly striving to grow, learn, and implement cutting-edge procedures that are designed to give our students an exceptional after-school experience,” Ken Davis, Phoenix Academy teacher and A.S.E.S. Coordinator, said. “Quality After School Programming provides the equivalent of 90 additional school days each year, and we hold that responsibility in the highest regard.”
Thank you to all our A.S.E.S. Families for being so understanding with last week's closure. We know these closures are inconvenient for our families, and truly appreciate your understanding in allowing our staff the opportunity to develop the high-quality programming you have come to expect of us.
