Afterschool practitioners can build partnerships with the regular school day teachers by tackling the standards together. The Survey of Teacher Programming Needs, found in the Y4Y Tools section, is a useful tool to get you started.
The school-day teacher identifies specific standards that students are struggling with in class and assigns a priority – high, medium, or low – so the afterschool partners know how to be most helpful. Think about using this tool for individual students or for a whole group, and include it as part of your portfolio of weekly planning tools.
