After-School Reading. NCEE Evaluation Brief. NCEE 2009-4056
National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance
After-school programs receive federal support through the 21st Century Community Learning Centers, established in 1999. A primary purpose of the program is to provide opportunities for academic enrichment to help students meet state and local standards in core content areas. Findings from a previous national evaluation of the program indicate that the program grants awarded between 1999 and 2002 had, on average, a limited academic impact on the academic achievement of participating elementary school students. This brief presents findings for the first of two years of program operations (school year 2005-06) on a study for reading. (Contains 1 figure.)
