Maryland schools can graduate more students after adopting an afterschool program says a study led by The City of San Marcos and Texas State University.

Afterschool programs increases parent engagement, lowers absenteeism, and improves graduation rates according to a report in The University Star.

“It is not just the kids that are at risk with income or special needs that can benefit from these programs,” a city executive told the newspaper.  “All children in the community will benefit from this.”
