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.
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, and clubs are also provided along with daily structured recreational activities.
All students will be engaged in a NEST period during their academic day (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday). During this 30-minute period students will have the opportunity for tutorial, free choice reading, or study time. All teachers on campus will provide a targeted NEST period. Students may be required to attend some tutorial sessions while others may choose to attend free choice reading or study center offered by their teachers. Tutorial sessions offer targeted intervention activities for specific students. A crucial component to the NEST period is the student’s daily use of the binder reminder. A binder reminder will be issued to each student during registration. Students who lose their binder reminder must purchase a new binder reminder for $5 at the library. Students are required to possess their binder reminder daily and must not tarnish them by removing, folding, cutting, or altering the binder reminder in any way possible.
