Over the last 20+ years, we've talked with thousands of OST program professionals who have indicated that their programs lacked an established, documented sustainability plan. Often, OSTs simply hope they'll receive another grant when their current grant ends. Otherwise, they're at risk of having to close their doors.

"The AfterSchool21 team demonstrates responsiveness to client needs and has helped with gathering of data needed with some additional tracking requested by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. They also keep abreast of reporting requirements by the US Department of Education and structure the system to mirror the federal reporting. {Federal Reporting} will be changing this year and I feel confident my subscription to AfterSchool21 will help with this transition."

"AfterSchool21 has strengthened education and communities in Georgia, through the 21st CCLC program. First and more broadly, it helps the programs to focus on data. Through the entering of data and analysis of reports, our programs are able to determine which students are receiving the greatest benefit from the program. This allows the programs to identify the strategies that are most successful and apply them across the program."
