As states re-vision quality systems with a focus on improvement, equity, empowering flexibility, and strong engagement with providers and families, there is opportunity to ensure a cohesive system across the age continuum, including how services complement and expand into school-age youth development. Alignment of resources, collaboration among partners, funding, investment, leadership, and sharing best and promising practices all matter. In this session, state leaders from New York, Nevada, Utah, and Wisconsin shared their insights on incorporating out-of-school time (OST). Wherever your state is in supporting programs to build continuous quality improvement in OST services, there is something for you to share and learn in this session as we explore what’s next within our context.
