is out on after school programs. The report looked at 35 after school programs that were free and was around four to five days a week. Over 2,900 students were looked at, but only students in elementary and middle school grade levels got looked at for this study.

They put students into three groups. Low supervision students dropped in sporadically on a mix of sports, school-based activities, and academic, arts, or religious lessons. Program only students participated in one of the high-quality afterschool programs. Program plus students participated in other activities (organized sports, church, Boys and Girls Club, etc.) along with the one of the high-quality afterschool programs.

The finding they came up with showed that students who were either in Program only or Program plus in both elementary and middle school grade levels had solid increases in math scores over the low supervision students. Middle school students who were Program only or Program plus also had less misconduct problems.
