• Description

This toolkit offers program managers a practical, hands-on guide for implementing quality programming in the after-school hours. The kit includes the tools and techniques that increased the quality of literacy programming and helped improve student reading gains in the Communities Organizing Resources to Advance Learning (CORAL) initiative of The James Irvine Foundation. CORAL is an eight-year, $58 million after-school initiative aimed at improving education achievement in low-performing schools in five California cities. In addition to strategies, process and instructions, this toolkit offers a series of tools program staff can use to build the quality of their after-school program.
