Study Shows Impact Afterschool Has on Reading

Recently, the Kansas Reading Roadmap (KRR) released a study of 9,000 children across 58 schools in Kansas that shows the impact that afterschool can have on early reading. Through a partnership with the Kansas Multi-Tiered System of Supports and Alignment (MTSS), the statistical analysis of individual student data found a strong correlation between afterschool intervention and grade-level reading based on school tests. For every day a child attended afterschool, his or her chances of reading at benchmark increased by 1.7%.
