It is my pleasure to share with you two new out-of-school time publications from Harvard Family Research Project.
LEARNING FROM SMALL-SCALE EXPERIMENTAL EVALUATIONS OF AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
The eighth publication in our “Out-of-School Time Evaluation Snapshots” series is now available on our website. “Learning From Small-Scale Experimental Evaluations of After School Programs” reviews the evaluation strategies and findings from rigorous, experimental studies that are smaller or more local in scope than the national evaluations usually featured. Although they are often overlooked, these evaluations can provide valuable information for practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and others about investing in, conducting, and evaluating OST programs.

EXPLORING QUALITY STANDARDS FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS: WHAT WE KNOW AND WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW
In our continuing efforts to understand and promote quality programming, HFRP and the National Institute on Out-of-School Time recently cohosted a 1-day summit on quality in middle school after school programs. At this summit, after school staff, administrators, researchers, and funders met to discuss how to define and assess middle school program quality and how to distinguish it from elementary school program quality. Our website now includes materials that summarize the discussions leading up to the summit, what we learned at the summit, and future directions for policy, practice, and research.
You can access that material on our website at:
