- Arizona Education: After-School Programs | Video
- Research shows that quality after-school programming has a positive impact on school attendance, achievement and the likelihood of graduation. Arizona was recently ranked in a national survey as being in the top ten of all states for after-school program support and parent satisfaction. Also, nearly 500 programs in our state signed a pledge to commit to using quality standards developed by the Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence and the Valley of the Sun United Way. We’ll look at one after school program run by the city of Tempe, KidsZone. Also, Melanie McClintock, executive director of the Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence, and Chad Geston, a former Camelback High School principal who integrated after-school activities and programs on that campus and saw dramatic results, will talk about the value of after-school programs.
