Fifty-Six Percent of Public Schools are Offering After-School Programs to Students Who Need Academic Assistance for 2022-23 School Year
Fifty-six percent of public schools are offering after-school programs for students who need academic assistance during the 2022-23 school year, according to data released today by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the statistical center within the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences (IES). Nearly half of public schools that offer this type of programming do so for 1-2 hours per day (46 percent) for 4 or 5 days per week (45 percent).
“These data shed new light on some of the academic assistance strategies public schools are employing during this school year,” said NCES Commissioner Peggy G. Carr. “Schools are providing after-school programs to support their students, including programs for those who need extra support and those who are looking for additional learning opportunities. Nearly half of schools that are offering after-school programing for students who need academic assistance are incorporating high-dosage tutoring and 42 percent are incorporating other types of tutoring.”
