Extended Learning Opportunities Department


The Extended Learning Opportunities Department administers the PrimeTime Extended Day Program, Saturday School and coordinates the implementation of Licensed Child Care Programs.

PrimeTime Extended Day Program is a free before and after school program available at most elementary, TK-8 and middle schools in San Diego Unified School District. PrimeTime provides students with a safe, structured environment before and/or after school, offering academic instruction, homework help and enrichment activities. Please visit the PrimeTime website for more information.

Core Academy: Supporting Student Achievement Success (Core Academy) program (formerly known as Saturday School) provides elementary, middle and high school students the opportunity to recover missed instructional days while receiving academic instruction and support. Core Academy classes are taught by a certificated instructor and allow students, and schools, to recover lost attendance. All schools may offer Core Academy on Saturdays throughout the school year, providing students with the opportunity to voluntarily participate in the program and take advantage of core academics. To ensure program quality and meet state compliance, schools with an interest in implementing a Core Academy program need to attend a mandatory training three (3) weeks prior to implementing their program in order to receive materials. For questions or further information, please contact Maria Lopez (mlopez8@sandi.net/ (858) 503-1873).

Licensed Child Care Programs, including School Age, Preschool and Infant programs, are licensed by the Department of Social Services and provide on site child care at a cost to families. School Age programs are offered before and/or after school, while Preschool and Infant programs may be offered before, during or after school. Extended Learning Opportunities is the primary point of contact for site administrators to coordinate implementation of Licensed Child Care Programs, but does not directly oversee the general program operations. Please contact Christiane Trout-McPhee for more information (cmcphee@sandi.net / (858) 503-1870).
