In an effort to locate successful outside the school time programs, this study identified thirty-two top performing schools in fifth-grade and sixth-grade math and English-language arts in California. These schools were similar demographically to the researcher's school, Burns Valley Elementary School in Clearlake, California. Burns Valley Elementary School consists of a 91.1% economically disadvantaged student population and their English Language Learner population has almost doubled in the last three years to 14.2%. The selected schools were asked questions regarding their after school programs, communication and assessment in regards to the programs and teacher incentives offered for participation. Thirteen schools responded to the survey through emails and phone conversations. These top schools are able to provide academic support in a unique way that is successful at their individual school sites. This book describes what the researcher learned from this study.
