MVWSD+ is our district's free afterschool and summer program for English Learners and/or socioecononmically disadvantaged students. It is part of California's Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP). “Expanded learning” means before school, after school, summer, or school break learning programs that focus on developing the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs and interests of pupils through hands-on, engaging learning experiences. It is the intent of the Legislature that expanded learning programs are pupil-centered, results-driven, include community partners, and complement, but do not replicate, learning activities during the regular school day and school year.

ELOP is authorized by Item 6100-110-0001 of the 2021–22 Budget Act (Senate Bill 129, Chapter 69, Statutes of 2021), and Assembly Bill (AB) 130, Chapter 44, Statutes of 2021, as amended by AB 167, Chapter 252, Statutes of 2021.
