10 Powerful Statements Made at the ‘Anytime, Anywhere’ Legislative Summit on Afterschool and Summer Learning

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Co-sponsored by NJSACC and NJ Principals and Supervisors Association, this informative summit was hosted on October 1, 2013 by Assemblywoman Mila Jasey and featured wonderful speakers such as Dr. Terry Peterson from After School Alliance, Massachusetts State Senator Thomas McGee, Lauren Heintz from the National Council of State Legislatures, Dr. Mary Reece from NJPSA and many notable others.

The following quotes represent only some of the powerful statements made during this valuable legislative summit surrounding expanded learning opportunities or “ELO”:

  • “ELO’s strength is also our achilles heel. We have lots of great people doing great things.”
  • “How do you roll out quality systems? Very carefully.”
  • “It is not enough to provide access, we have to improve quality.”
  • “At least 445,000 kids in NJ that live in communities eligible for 21st CCLC funding are without programming because of a lack of funds.”
  • “If you don’t have program quality, you can’t have increased gains in positive behaviors, attendance and academics.”
  • “The first step to Career and College Readiness is graduating high school. We all too often forget this step.”
  • “ELO can help strengthen school, community, family partnerships to support students in all of those places.”
  • “ELO/OST can address factors for increased student success in all topics.”
  • “NJ has 1.4 million students in public school. 450k are in low income neighborhoods. More families are working.”
  • “Afterschool programs naturally support the school day through their support of Common Core and the Habits of the Mind.”
