Across the communities featured in BBA case studies, high-quality afterschool and summer options for enrichment are built into the school system.

  • Several of these case studies are of community schools districts. In another such district, Oakland, CA, an evaluation of 92 afterschool programs found that the vast majority of participating students felt safer in those programs than at any other point during the day.
  • This 2013 report, The Growing Convergence of Community Schools and Expanded Learning¬† Opportunities, describes this core component of the community school model, featuring the wide variety of programs available to students at community schools through their multiple partnerships with community stakeholders.
