Short Definition: % of students who participated in after-school educational activities
Percent of students who reported on the SALT survey that they "belonged but didn't attend regularly" or "belonged and attended regularly" or "belonged/participated" in an educational after-school activity in the past year including: other youth programs in the community, formal lessons not part of school (e.g. YMCA/YWCA, Scouting, etc.), library-related activities, paid informal work, paid work at a "real" job, academic, career, or cultural enrichment activities through school, or career exploration services. This indicator is discontinued for future comparisons because of lack of consistency between the questions in the SALT survey and the new SurveyWorks! questions.
