This year’s theme is "Celebrate the Journey!", as we reflect upon and CELEBRATE SERRF's 20 YEARS! The SERRF Expanded Learning Program is committed to motivating student learning through the application of the following research-based principles that are aligned with Common Core State Standards and reflected in our after school and summer programming:
Learning is Active
Learning is Collaborative
Learning is Meaningful
Learning Supports Mastery
Learning Expands Horizons
Additionally, in collaboration with Tehama County Department of Education, we are an official "No Excuses University" participant. Through this affiliation, we have established high expectations for student achievement and promote the importance of college and career readiness for all of our Tehama County youth.
SERRF provides 1800 kindergarten through eighth grade students instruction in academics, enrichment and recreation in coordination with schools to support the California Student Learning Standards. SERRF serves all change twenty-three Tehama County elementary and middle schools, including small, isolated rural school sites.
In addition to other honors received, the SERRF Expanded Learning Program was prestigiously selected by California Department of Education to serve as a “California After School Demonstration Program,” one of nine in the state of California.
Now in its twentieth year of development, board members, educators, parents, students and community members see the Tehama County SERRF program as a vital element in maintaining the continual academic, social and emotional improvement of children in our county.
To blend the enthusiasm of youth, with the dedication of parents, the commitment of educators, and the expertise of the community members to promote academic competence, assist children in achieving their fullest potential, and plant the seeds of responsibility and service to their community.
To provide a physically and emotionally safe, healthy, enriching environment through expanded learning opportunities for students.
This includes homework support, tutoring, academic enrichment and alignment, recreation, social skills development, healthy lifestyle choices and prevention activities. This will result in students meeting and exceeding national, state and county achievement standards.
