Guidance for Out-of-School Time Learning at a Distance (GOLD): Standards and Self-Assessment Manual
These program standards, self-assessment rubric, and resources are designed to help afterschool programs evaluate and improve the support they are providing for youth who are engaged in distance learning. The standards are organized into four categories: (1) Family-and-Caregiver-Centered Engagement; (2) Individual Learning Environment; (3) Distance Programming; and (4) Planning with Children, Families, Caregivers, and Schools. This toolkit includes a database of resources that will continue to be added to in order to offer insight and best practices for each standard. This resource supports the COVID-19 response.
