Review of Extended-Day and After-School Programs and Their Effectiveness MS Word - This report identifies and reviews 34 programs that have been used as after-school programs by schools and/or communities, including extended-day programs and some supplemental school programs that have potential for after-school usage. Five categories of programs are reviewed for effectiveness for improving student outcomes and their evidence of replicability in other locations: (1) language arts after-school programs, (2) study skills programs, (3) academic programs in other curriculum areas, (4) tutoring programs for reading and (5) community-based programs. The report also presents a set of components of effective after-school programs and recommendations for implementing these components. (Olatokunbo S.
