Champions® and NAA First Annual ‘Out-of-School-Time’ Survey Reveals the Importance and Effectiveness of Before- and After-School Programs
A recent survey of elementary and middle school superintendents underscored the importance and benefits that out-of-school time programs offer today’s students. The survey, conducted by extended learning provider Champions® and the National AfterSchool Association (NAA), explored before- and after-school educational and enrichment programs and superintendents’ belief in their effectiveness in improving student performance. In fact, a vast majority – 82 percent – of surveyed school superintendents across the country agreed that educational programs beyond the traditional school day are not only important, but improve learning and social interaction and are highly successful at supplementing in-class curriculum.
