ABSTRACT

COVID-19 School-Age Care Solution: 21st Century Community Learning Centers   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "School officials and policy makers are searching for solutions to support working families and their school-aged children this fall, due to the ongoing COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] crisis, which has caused schools to implement remote learning and variable schedules. While these plans are intended to stop the spread of the virus, they will also create demand for school-aged child care from more than 23 million workers with no at-home care option, and necessitate additional educational support for children while they are not in the classroom. One proven program already exists to meet these needs: 21st Century Community Learning Centers. Scaling up this program would provide working families--particularly low-income families--with the combination of school-age care and proven academic support they will need this school year."
