LEAD HUB – Formerly DASH

Dear Tiffany Families,

This email below was already sent to families on Tuesday, June 11th.  I am sending it again to make sure that our families receive it.

Take Care,

Dr. Sutton

Hello CVESD Families:

The LEAD Hub, formerly the DASH and STRETCH programs, is free for CVESD students in transitional kindergarten through sixth grade. It offers a range of enriching before-school and after-school programs designed to enhance the learning and development of Chula Vista Elementary School District students.

In response to the high demand for the LEAD Hub Program, we are updating the registration process to make it more accessible and convenient for families. We are in the final stages of developing a new online registration platform, which will be available on Friday, June 14, 2024, at 6 p.m. You can access the registration form by clicking here.

LEAD Hub will be on the 180-day calendar. The hours will vary by school site and depend on the school’s start and end times.

How are students selected?

All LEAD Hub applications will be reviewed by LEAD and YMCA staff. Each program has a maximum number of students who can be served based on the grant amount allotted per school site. Students will be enrolled based on the rating system detailed below, up to the capacity for each school’s program. Once the program has reached its capacity, students not accepted for participation will remain on the waitlist and be accepted as space becomes available.

Priority will go to students who are identified by the program as homeless youth, as defined by the federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. Sec. 11434a), at the time that they apply for enrollment or at any time during the school year, and to students who are identified by the program as being in foster care.

If the program receives more applications than the spaces available, the applications with the most points will be given priority for participation. In cases where a determination must be made between two or more applications with the same points, selection for acceptance will be based on the date of submission of the completed applications. For priority enrollment, the attendance policy will be strictly enforced.

Application Point System:

Application Point System  
Unduplicated Student: Foster McKinney Vento (Homeless), English Language Learner, and Socioeconomically disadvantaged 6 Points
Student has applied for the program and will attend 5 days a week 2 Points
Students with one parent/guardian currently active-duty military or on military deployment 2 Points
Student with at least one parent/guardian currently employed by the Chula Vista Elementary School District 1 Point

Waitlist Information: All families not accepted into the program will be placed on the waitlist. Once space becomes available, families will be emailed with their student’s start date.

For additional questions, please contact the LEAD Program at cvesd.leadprogram@cvesd.org.

Parking Lot Safety   

For your review, here are the traffic and parking lot expectations:

  • Red Curbs – “as required under California Vehicle Code Section 21458(a)(1), a curb painted red shall indicate no stopping, standing, or parking whether the vehicle is attended or unattended.” 
  • The left lane in the parking lot is for traffic to move through.  Parking/stopping in the left lane blocks cars from being able to exit.  Students should not exit or enter vehicles that are in the left lane.
  • Use crosswalks for crossing the street and parking lot.  When dropping students off, please be sure that they exit the vehicle on the right so that they get out directly onto the sidewalk closest to the school building.
  • Follow traffic patterns and do not double park along parking spaces.
  • Right turn only out of our lot during arrival and dismissal.
  • Bus loading and unloading areas are for district vans and buses only

If you would like to volunteer in our parking lot, please let me know at crystal.sutton@cvesd.org.

Here’s to a great week!
