[TransACT] AfterSchool Programs has strengthened education and communities in Georgia, through the 21st CCLC program... As a state, we have seen significant gains in the number of students served because we are targeting those programs that have the greatest opportunity for improvement.

The Wausau School District has been using [Afterschool21] for Out-of-School attendance and record keeping since 2007. This has been a tremendous resource for 21st Century grant reporting. We run our programs under multiple funding sources and the ability to track attendance and create reports tied to the appropriate funding is valuable. I appreciate the ability to monitor at a District level and prepare reports as needed for principals and other stakeholders... Thank you, AfterSchool Programs team, for 'having our back.'
