Check out some of the latest headlines on issues impacting the afterschool and youth development field. Of particular interest is an article highlighting how afterschool and summer programs incorporate learning approaches that support the Common Core State Standards: Summer and After-School Programs Provide a Jump on Common Core, originally published in EdSource and also locally in the Kitsap Sun.  This article focuses on programs in California, but is very applicable to programming happening here in Washington.  Be sure to check out some upcoming community events School’s Out Washington will be hosting with regional partners focused on Common Core and STEM.
