Daly City Partnership Programs

After School Academic Programs (ASAP).

Kindergarten Readiness, Literacy Tutoring, Homework Assistance and Enrichment classes are offered at the 15 schools in the four school districts in Daly City: Bayshore, Brisbane, South San Francisco Unified and Jefferson Elementary School District.

The Kindergarten Readiness (KR) summer program serves children who will be entering Kindergarten in the fall and who have not attended a curriculum base preschool program and/or are English language learners. Students meet their Kindergarten teacher in their future classroom, learn basic academic preparedness, and practice appropriate classroom behavior.

In the Literacy Tutoring program, children who are behind their grade level in reading are referred by their classroom teacher to the program. The low ratio of teacher to students builds a more personal environment that allows each tutor to determine each child's learning style. Reading and writing are enhanced by games, music and other creative activities.

The program model for the Homework Assistance program program suggests that if children are provided with structure, space, and supervision to do their homework on campus during after school hours, they will develop better study skills and habits and increase the rate of completion and overall quality of their homework. Instructional aides from the same school sites conduct the program. Classroom teachers' refer children who have a history of low homework completion or poor quality assignments.

The Enrichment Classes introduce life-long enriching activities to children, as well as enlarge the scope of a child's learning by offering a variety of experiences for them to explore. For some students, such programs spark a lifelong interest in a particular subject and motivate them to do better in school. These classes include Dance, Music, Art, Science, and other enjoyable classes

Community Action Response Team (CART).

Community Action Response Team (CART) is a prevention focused and community based program that serves families in the Northern Region of San Mateo County. CART is currently providing services in three 3 areas of prevention. First, CART is the administrator of the Differential Response Program (DR). DR is a six month intensive wrap around services program that is home based. Families are referred to CART exclusively through San Mateo County's Children Protective Services (CPS). Once referred, families are engaged based on their unique needs and services are customized to meet these specific needs. Community Workers are embedded through out key cities in Northern San Mateo County so that access to services and service delivery is streamlined for maximum efficiency.

Second, CART is delivering Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Prevention Services in the Bayshore Community in Daly City. Bayshore Community Prevention Partnership (BCPP) was formed as a community centered and partnership lead grass root movement that is aimed at reducing access and use of AOD substances amongst youth within our community. Through the support of our various partners, CART has been implementing evidence based environmental prevention strategies since 2009. Last but not least, CART is a part of a mental health collaborative called North County Outreach Collaborative (NCOC). NCOC is aiming at reducing stigma around mental health services and increase eligibility and access to existing services for families that are eligible for services. Since its inception, NCOC has played a prominent role within the communities we serve and have shown its effectiveness with direct increase of access of mental health services in Northern San Mateo County.
