AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 14 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO FREE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
This bill creates an Expanded Learning Opportunities Council to provide research, recommendations, and coordination regarding before and after school programs and summer learning opportunities for school-age children. The Chair of the Council is also added to the Interagency Resource Management Committee as a non-voting member. The creation of an Expanded Learning Opportunities Council was one of the primary recommendations of the Statewide Afterschool Initiative Task Force, which was created by the 148th General Assembly. The Task Force felt that the design and delivery of services would be enhanced by a standing body tasked with tracking developments across the country and in the State, with a view towards encouraging the development of programs and funding models that maximize positive outcomes.
