NCEE 20094077 The Evaluation of Enhanced Academic Instruction in After-School Programs: Final Report
The report, The Evaluation of Enhanced Academic Instruction in After-School Programs: Final Report, includes two parallel impact studies, a math program study ("Mathletics" developed by Harcourt School Publishers) and a reading program study ("Adventure Island" developed by the Success for All Foundation) in which students attending an afterschool program are assigned by lottery to either receive the structured academic programming or the after-school programming regularly offered. For each academic program, the evaluation design allows for information about the one-year impact in the first and second years of operation as well as the two-year impact in which the program was offered to students for two consecutive years. Data on after-school staff characteristics, program implementation, and student outcomes were collected in the first and second years in 27 centers (12 providing the reading program and 15 providing the math program).

NCES 2009084 Public-Use Data Files and Documentation (FRSS 91): After-School Programs in Public Elementary Schools
This file contains data from a 2008 fast-response survey titled “After-School Programs in Public Elementary Schools.” This survey provides a national profile of various types of formal after-school programs physically located at public elementary schools in 2008. These programs include stand-alone programs that focus primarily on a single type of service (e.g., only day care) and broad-based programs that provide a combination of services such as academic enrichment and cultural activities. NCES released the results of the survey in the First Look report After-School Programs in Public Elementary Schools.

Questionnaires and cover letters for the study were mailed to the principal of each sampled school in late December 2007. The letter introduced the study and requested that the questionnaire be completed by the person most knowledgeable about after-school programs that were physically located at the school. Respondents were encouraged to consult with the administrators of after-school programs that were located at the school but operated by some entity other than the school or district (e.g., privately run fee-based day care). Respondents were offered the option of completing the survey via the Web or by mail. Telephone followup for survey nonresponse and data clarification was initiated in January 2008 and completed in early May 2008. The final response rate was 91 percent.

The survey focuses on four broad types of after-school programs: (1) fee-based stand-alone day care programs for which parents paid fees; (2) stand-alone academic instruction/tutoring programs that focus exclusively on academic instruction or tutoring, including Supplemental Educational Services in schools that did not meet Adequate Yearly Progress; (3) the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLCs) administered through the federally funded 21st CCLC Program to provide academic enrichment opportunities; and (4) other types of formal stand-alone or broad-based after-school programs. The information collected about after-school programs includes: program focus (if applicable), number of students enrolled, hours per week the program operates, availability of transportation for students, whether students from other schools attend the program, and factors that may hinder students from participating in the program.

NCES 2009043 After-School Programs in Public Elementary Schools
This study provides a national profile of various types of formal after-school programs physically located at public elementary schools in 2008. These programs included stand-alone programs that focus primarily on a single type of service (e.g., only day care) and broad-based programs that provide a combination of services such as academic enrichment and cultural activities. This report focuses on four broad types of after-school programs: (1) fee-based stand-alone day care programs for which parents paid fees; (2) stand-alone academic instruction/tutoring programs that focus exclusively on academic instruction or tutoring, including Supplemental Educational Services in schools that did not meet Adequate Yearly Progress; (3) the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLCs) administered through the federally funded 21st CCLC Program to provide academic enrichment opportunities; and (4) other types of formal stand-alone or broad-based after-school programs.

Fifty-six percent of public elementary schools reported that one or more after-school programs were physically located at the school in 2008. Forty-six percent of public elementary schools reported a fee-based stand-alone day care program; 43 percent reported one or more stand-alone academic instruction/tutoring programs; 10 percent reported a 21st CCLC, and 16 percent reported other types of after-school programs. Together, the various types of after-school programs accounted for an estimated 4 million enrollments. These include duplicated enrollments because students could be enrolled in more than one program. The proportion of public elementary schools reporting that their students attended after-school programs at another location ranged from 46 percent for fee-based stand-alone day care to 3 percent for 21st CCLCs.

NCES 2004008 Before- and After-School Care, Programs, and Activities of Children in Kindergarten Through Eighth Grade: 2001
This report provides insight into the complex and varied ways kindergarten through eighth graders in the nation spend their time out of school. Some spend time in with relative or a nonrelative in a home setting. Others spend time in center- or school-based programs or organized activities that are aimed toward their enrichment or enjoyment. Still others are responsible for themselves during out-of-school time. Children also experience patchworks of arrangements in order to meet the contingencies of availability, cost, etc. Data used for this report come from the Before- and After-School Programs and Activities Survey of the 2001 National Household Education Surveys Program.
