Michigan Out- of-School Time Standards of Quality
"The Michigan Out-of-School Time (Most) Standards of Quality are designed to assist schools and other organizations in developing high-quality comprehensive OST programs for all children and youth in grades K-12. The standards are based on research concerning quality programs for school-age children and youth.
A set of critical components for out of school time programs is presented in this document as seven distinct areas for which quality standards have been established. These components are:
Health and Safety;
Indoor and Outdoor Environment;
Single Purpose Programs.
These standards define the recognized indicators of OST programs quality" (MI State Board of Education, March 2013).
