Success For Each Child & Eliminate the Opportunity Gap by Leading with Racial Equity

Students Served

The 21st CCLC program categorized groups of students based on the number of days they attended. The charts that follow show these groupings for each site and for Kent overall:

  • Students attending less than 10 days likely receive few benefits from the program
  • Students attending 10-29 days may receive some benefits
  • Students who attend 30 or more days are likely to receive some benefits and are referred to as regular attendees
  • Regular attendees who attend 60 or more days are believed to receive the most benefit

The 21st CCLC program aims to serve a meaningful number of students at each site with a meaningful intensity of service. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and school closures, each site had the following objectives:

  • Serve 100 students per day
  • 100 students will be regular attendees (attend at least 30 days)*(2020-21 priority)
  • 60% of regular attending students will attend 60 or more days* (2020-21 priority)

Overall, the program served fewer students in 2020-21 than in prior years, serving 116 students in 2020-21 compared to the program on average serving 400-500 students each year in the past.

Although overall students served were lower compared to past years, the percentage of regular attendees (defined as attending 30 days or more) grew. Even more notable is that the percentage of participants that attended 90 days or more is higher than in past years. (More data available)

  • In 2020-21, 42% of participants were regular attendees in comparison to 28% and 38% in past years.
  • In 2020-21, 55% of regular attendees attended 60 days or more, slightly falling short of the program goal for 60% of regular attendees to attend 60 or more days.
  • In 2020-21, 15% of participants attended 90 days or more, compared to 0% and 20% in past years.

Both Site Coordinators note that enrollment has been a challenge in 2020-21, with fewer opportunities to connect with students due to school closures and students’ and families’ “Zoom fatigue” from online learning. At the same time, regular attendance was a strength for both programs with a large proportion of regular attending students (defined as attending 30 days or more).

As the Meeker Site Coordinator reports,

“[The program had a] high level of engagement amongst enrolled students, with an estimate of 90% of students enrolled attending program daily, with an average daily attendance of 12-16 students”

As the Mill Creek Site Coordinator notes,

“Despite the difficulties of COVID, we have a core group of students who are dedicated to coming to our afterschool program. They are so respectful and love coming to program daily. They love helping out during program any time they can.”
