Assessing the Quality of Before and After School Programs

High-quality before and after school programs have the potential to enhance student engagement and improve academic achievement, by extending the school day in a fun, safe and relaxed environment. However, there are important factors to consider in selecting programs for a district, as well as determining the quality and effectiveness of existing before and after school programs.

Attend this web seminar to hear from the superintendent of the Union Elementary School District in San Jose, CA and a programming expert, who will share insights into the national standards for Quality School-Age Care, present tools to assess program quality in a district, and connect how these standards and tools can apply to real-world programs.

Topics will include:

  • How high-quality before and after school programs impact student achievement
  • Which key indicators are critical for a quality before and after school program
  • How to use various measurement tools to assess quality programs within your own school district
