The mission of out-of-school programming at BHRSD is to provide opportunities for students to receive academic intervention and advancement, extend school-day learning, facilitate personal growth, and develop social-emotional learning in an active, engaging, community environment.

At Community Learning & Enrichment Opportunities (CLEO) we support the growth of the whole student through active learning opportunities  which are collaborative, experiential, enriching, relevant, playful, and authentic.
