**Attitudes toward school/after school programs**

Teachers and volunteers supervising the after school programs were asked to complete a survey about the attitudes of the students who attended in the Fall 05 semester.

Teachers/volunteers were asked to respond "yes" or "no" to each of the following about each student:

- Has a positive attitude toward school.
- Has a positive attitude toward the after school program.
- Has improved in attending the program.
- Has improved in being attentive at the program.
- Has improved in getting along well with others.

A total of 18 students were reported upon.

The graph below shows the percentage of students about whom teachers responded ‘yes’
to each of these five statements. Overall, a generally positive report on these 5 aspects
is given for the 18 students.

A ‘positive disposition’ score is obtained by assigning a score of 1 to each of the five statements about each student. The following table shows the resulting distribution:

**Positive Disposition**

Total score | Frequency | Percent | Valid Percent | CumulativePercent | |

Valid | 4 | 4 | 2.8 | 22.2 | 22.2 |

5 | 14 | 9.7 | 77.8 | 100.0 | |

Total | 18 | 12.5 | 100.0 |

The graph below shows the distribution of the positive disposition scores. Generally, the students are positively disposed toward school and the after school program, as suggested by the predominance of scores of 5.

The survey provided for teachers to comment on subjects being paid attention to by students. The following graph shows tabulations of these comments by school subject. The graph suggests that both Mathematics and English/reading are most frequently receiving attention from the students.
