AIR's Beyond the Bell Toolkit is practical and easy-to-use. It contains great information for program leaders who want to start or improve an afterschool and expanded learning program.
The Toolkit is designed to be a resource for program leaders in new and existing programs who want to promote continuous quality improvement. The content reflects a cycle of continuous improvement: it helps program leaders and staff members develop a program using sound processes, implement the program by employing high-quality practices, rigorously evaluate the implementation of the program, and use the data from the evaluation activities to continually improve the program.
The Toolkit is divided into six stand-alone chapters:
Chapter 1: Management
Chapter 2: Program Design
Chapter 3: Partnerships and Collaboration
Chapter 4: Program Delivery
Chapter 5: Evaluation
Chapter 6: Program Improvement
Each Toolkit comes with a username and password to access our website where you can access all 96 tools in Microsoft Word for easy customization and use. We also offer the option to purchase the Beyond the Bell Flash Drive which contains all 96 tools in Word format for easy customization. The flash drive is only available for purchase with a copy of the Beyond the Bell Toolkit.
