The 2019-2020 school year for Palm Beach County officially starts on Monday, August 12, 2019. While families begin their back-to-school preparations, Prime Time is here to remind them that the time after the school bell ring is a critical time for learning as well. We are providing families with a tip sheet to help them assess the level of quality that exists in their child’s afterschool program.

Research shows that a high-quality afterschool program can positively impact social and emotional skills, school grades, standardized test scores, school attendance and on-time grade promotion.
