Abstract:

This booklet is part of a series of reports on "hot topics" in education. It discusses after-school programs, sometimes referred to as "extended-day" programs, which are often operated in school buildings but may be implemented in other community locations. The booklet offers a brief overview of the research on after-school programs, examines ideas for implementing a program, and profiles some sites in the northwestern United States that have successful after-school programs. There is a growing need for after-school programs, especially in urban areas, as the after-school hours are becoming an increasingly dangerous time for students. Beyond issues of safety are the rewards students and communities can reap as a result of quality after-school programs. Some ideas for implementing an after-school program are outlined, and some of the potential pitfalls to avoid are described. Seven programs, some of which are in urban areas, are described. Appendixes list web sites and resources with further information about after-school programs. (Contains 21 references.) (Sld).
