Back to school in the time of COVID-19

Afterschool programs are adapting to the various school reopening scenarios that are being implemented across the country. The Wave 3 survey provides a snapshot of the education landscape in the United States, focusing on how afterschool program providers are supporting and complementing school-day learning as schools operate in person, virtually, and with hybrid schedules. As schools and families deal with the rapidly changing local circumstances related to the coronavirus, afterschool programs are stepping up and tailoring their services to support students and address gaps: extending program hours, offering access to healthy meals and services, and providing care to the children of essential workers. Afterschool in the Time of COVID-19 Wave 3 data were collected from Sep. 28 to Oct. 27, surveying 1,445 program providers representing more than 7,300 program sites in 48 states and the District of Columbia.
