The mission of the After School Program for middle school students is to improve academic performance, reduce the incidence of behavioral problems, increase recreational and social opportunities, and promote positive parental involvement.
Sunnyvale school district faces problems similar to many rural school districts across the nation. In summary, the problems are low academic achievement, high drop out rate (low graduation rate), low self-esteem, increasing incidents of violence, increasing use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, few chances for organized recreation, and insufficient positive parental involvement in education.
The After School Program for middle school students has five main components:
1. Improve academic performance with supervised homework completion, tutoring, and supplemental academic instruction.
2. Provide applied learning activities such as cooking and carpentry.
