Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence (AzCASE) — Resources for Arizona’s OST professionals

Summer Learning Survey
In Maricopa County, we know there are dozens of summer school programs However, there is not a comprehensive understanding of the quality, scope, access, affordability, or outcomes of these programs.
That is why AzCASE is partnering with Valley of the Sun United Way and the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) to take a self-assessment of our current system and a survey of summer learning programs.
We are inviting ALL MARICOPA COUNTY PROGRAMS to join this project, by completing a survey on your summer program.
Your program information will allow us to capture a snapshot of the state of summer programs for children and youth, and will allow you, your colleagues and community members to understand the need for programming and the opportunities for collaboration. 
Please use this link to let us know about your summer program:
We greatly appreciate you completing this survey. We believe it will yield valuable information that will help our community to better support and provide enriching opportunities for children and youth during the summer months.
