Creating a Successful, Citywide System of Before- and Afterschool Programs. Promising Practices in Citywide Afterschool Initiatives.
National Institute on Out-of-School Time
San Diego is the first major city in the United States with comprehensive before and afterschool programs in every public elementary and middle school within its jurisdiction. This "6 to 6" program currently serves both elementary and middle school students in 204 public schools in the city of San Diego. With a strong public endorsement from San Diego's Mayor, "6 to 6" was able to gain support from major city offices and city leaders, local advocacy groups, the public, and the state government. This support was crucial in both the development and the sustainability of the "6 to 6" initiative. This report touches on all the details of this initiative. [This Promising Practice was produced by the National Institute on Out-of-School Time for CityWorks and adapted from an original paper written by Erin Coleman, Afterschool Strategist, Afterschool Institute.]
