Mayor Marks Expanded After-School Program

Mayor Richard Riordan celebrated the first expansion of LA's BEST since 1999 in a visit to Pacoima Elementary School on Wednesday afternoon.

LA's BEST, which stands for Better Educated Students for Tomorrow, is a free program that offers a set curriculum for students ages 5 to 12.

Twenty-five schools in the Valley are LA's BEST sites. Only year-round schools will offer the program during summer vacation months.
