State after-school programs make a difference for students in Utah
affected by intergenerational poverty

Utah Education Policy Center releases new study on after-school programs

A study by the Utah Education Policy Center (UEPC) found that students who participated in after-school programs designed to serve those affected by intergenerational poverty performed better on year-end state assessments in English language arts, mathematics and science compared to their performance in the years they did not participate. Moreover, students in these programs also performed better the longer they were in the after-school program. Students tripled the average academic gains in assessment scores after attending for three years compared to the gains in scores for one year of attendance. The report that contains a longitudinal analysis of student outcomes can be found at  uepc.live/igp2018.
