Out-of-School Time Report
In partnership with the Greater Rochester After-School Alliance (GRASA), The Children’s Agenda has completed an inventory of out-of-school (OST) time opportunities in Rochester. This report is an update and expansion on previous inventories of after-school programs in Rochester. Several recent initiatives in the Rochester area target resources toward common goals of 3rd grade reading competency and overall school success for Rochester students. A growing body of research has shown that time spent outside the classroom—in after-school programs and in summer learning and expanded learning opportunities—can impact efforts to improve the academic and social/emotional competencies of preK – 12 students.
