This practice guide provides five recommendations to design effective out-of-school time (OST) programs, including the research behind them, how to implement them, and how to address roadblocks that may arise.
The authors developed five recommendations:
- Align the OST program academically with the school day
- Maximize student achievement and attendance
- Adapt instruction to individual and small group needs
- Provide engaging learning experiences
- Assess program performance and use the results to improve the quality of the program
