About this grant

This grant will support efforts to determine alternative ways to include the cost of afterschool programs in state school finance formulas. Although afterschool programs typically have been financed apart from state/local finance systems, their benefit to schools and students merit their being funding within state systems.Funding will allow Augenblick, Palaich and Associates to work with the Afterschool Technical Assistance Collaborative to identify a set of possible indicators that can be used to estimate student demand for afterschool services; develop costs of afterschool programs; and recommend ways to factor the cost of afterschool programs into state education formulas.Augenblick, Palaich and Associates is a Denver-based consulting firm that provides technical assistance to state-level policymakers on education finance, governance and school improvement systems.
