Quality Standards

Alabama Afterschool Quality Standards

After many years of work, multiple revisions, and iterations, the Alabama Afterschool Quality Standards are now complete. The ALACN Standards’ Taskforce consulted with local and national partners, and a wide array of constituents and stakeholders to develop a comprehensive, instructional instrument – yet practical and useful.

The standards are voluntary programmatic implementational strategies that should serve as a framework of clear expectations for all programs and stakeholders across Alabama, no matter their location or setting.
