Harris County Department of Education Launches Cityspan Provider to Support CASE for Kids
Harris County's Center for Afterschool, Summer and Expanded Learning (CASE for Kids) recently deployed Cityspan Provider to track high quality Out-of-School Time programming across seventeen school districts. CASE for Kids helps communities by building collaborative partnerships to support at-risk students and their families. Cityspan will be used initially to support the Partnership Project, an initiative that promotes numeracy and literacy development for students between the ages of 4 and 12. The system will also track data for City Connections, a project funded by the City of Houston to expand youth and family services at schools, community centers and churches.
At the national level, CASE for Kids recently joined several Cityspan clients as members of the newly launched Every Hour Counts National Learning Community, a peer-learning community focused on building sustainable collaborative systems and sharing best practices to improve the quality and availability of after school programs.
