School-Age Child-Care/"Latch-Key" Programs. Implementation Handbook for Indiana Schools. First Edition.
Indiana State Dept. of Education, Indianapolis.
This handbook is designed to provide local school corporations with information about legislation enacted by the Indiana General Assembly in 1991 that requires each corporation to offer latch-key programs, or child-care programs for school-age children, during the 1992-93 school year. The handbook supplies school corporations with: (1) a copy of the text of the legislation; (2) a checklist of key issues to be addressed; (3) information about specific school policies that must be adopted, along with sample policy statements; (4) information about deadlines that must be met; (5) regulations for school-age child-care programs; (6) a sample parent survey that can be used to assess corporation needs; (7) ideas on child-care program preparation, including material on choosing an outside provider or hiring personnel directly, and choosing a location; (8) a discussion of financial issues and funding sources; (9) information on waivers for school corporations that believe that the implementation of a school-age child-care program would result in undue financial hardship on the corporation; and (10) a list of the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of 64 Indiana child-care providers that have indicated an interest in working with schools in the implementation of child care programs.
