After School Education and Safety (ASES) Grant

The After School Education and Safety (ASES) Grant is funded through the California Department of Education. The grant was made possible by the passage of Proposition 49. Beginning 2017-18, Tustin Unified will have a new contracted partner provider, California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) to provide the after school program, Titans ASES.
ASES is a program for students enrolled in grades one through five at TUSD elementary schools and grades six through eight at TUSD middle schools. The program is open each day that school is in session, and participants attend the program from school dismissal until 5:45/6:00 PM. Titans ASES is free to families, and participation is subject to program capacity.
ASES is offered at the following elementary and middle schools:

  • Beswick Elementary School
  • Estock Elementary School
  • Heideman Elementary School
  • Thorman Elementary School
  • Veeh Elementary School
  • Columbus Tustin Middle School
  • Currie Middle School
  • Utt Middle School
Students are served a nutritious meal that conforms to state and district nutritional standards. Titans ASES Instructors collaborate with principals and classroom teachers to support student homework and reading. District aligned educational and enrichment activities & clubs are also provided along with daily structured recreational activities.
