Back to School in the Time of COVID-19
This report covers results of a survey of 1,445 providers between September 28-October 7, 2020. Results indicate that more programs are open now than in the spring or summer, although on average they are serving half the children they were serving last fall. The survey also shows that there is unequal access to afterschool for children from low-income families. Programs are concerned about children's mental health, learning loss, and lack of social opportunities. Programs are facing many challenges in serving students, including concerns about ongoing sustainability.
