After School Program

I feel that the after-school program plays a strong role in our youths educational development skills, specifically within urban communities. The school district look's at the after-school program as a form of child care, when in reality it coincides with the school districts lack of community support. With the cost of living sky rocketing, and with the average family making less than $45,000.00 a year, the after school program is needed in order to properly assist our community with educating our students.

The school district need to understand the pro's and con's of the after-school program. The only con for the after-school program would be that the OUSD and Charter school systems don't have adequate financial assistance for staff members of the after-school program. The OUSD and Charter school's also need to understand the importance of the pro's for the after-school program. With the after-school program, teachers could count on various staff members for assistance with mentoring the after-school students. With the after-school program, home work assignments where complete and on time. Our students confidence enhanced with the advanced social skills that come with the after-school program. Bullying was at an all time low due to the small groups that where created for our students to rotate weekly within the after-school program.

Without the after school program, we're coming to see more of our students being picked up late after school, and this sometimes causes for the teacher, staff, or administration to stay after with the student to assure that he or she is properly picked up by their parent or guardian. The district needs to understand when parents are late with picking up their students from school, it's not because they don't care, and it's not because they are taking advantage of the after-school system. The problem comes with the lack of parent district support, in a community with a lack of resources for after-school care. With the after school program taking the stress off of parents after work during their rushed commutes to their students school, we would see a rise in attendance, and a rise in academics and achievement scores.
