Each year, the SERRF After School Program has three community-wide events:

SERRF ANNUAL "LIGHTS ON!" - THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2019 AT ALL SERRF SITES Top of Page

"Celebrating 20 Years in Expanded Learning"

The 2019 SERRF Expanded Learning Program theme for “Light’s On!” is Ignite Education.  The SERRF community, consisting of students, families, staff, school affiliates and local partners will be participating in interactive activities spotlighting our focus areas and bringing awareness to the overall importance of keeping the “Lights On!” after school in Tehama County!

Since 1999, schools and copious community partners have joined together to implement high quality after school services tailored to the needs of the students, parents, and community members in a chronically depressed economy where many parents of children subsist on the bottom rung of California’s growing population of immigrants and the working poor.  SERRF provides 2000+ TK/Kindergarten through eighth grade students’ instruction in academics, enrichment and recreation in coordination with schools to support the Common Core Student Learning Standards.  SERRF serves all twenty-five Tehama County elementary and middle schools, including small, isolated rural school sites.

In collaboration with Tehama County Department of Education, our Lead Educational Agency, we are an official “No Excuses University” County Department of Education.  Through this affiliation, we have established high expectations for student achievement and promote the importance of college and career readiness for all Tehama County students!  So, join us in highlighting this and other engaging areas of after school programming that will be emphasized, on October 24, 2019, as we Celebrate 20 Years in Expanded Learning
