After one of the most tumultuous years in education in decades – with in-person programs shut down for months or even a year, the Georgia Department of Education continues to innovate and expand its offerings for parents and students. The latest announcement was on Tuesday of a partnership between the Georgia Department of Education and the Georgia Statewide Afterschool Network (GSAN).

The GSAN will be administering the Building Opportunities in Out-of-School Time (BOOST) grant program in the name of the GaDOE, with two separate, three-year grant opportunities. Made possible by the American Rescue Plan, $85 million in grants will meet the federal requirement to use a portion of the funds to address the loss of learning time over the last year. Many students that would otherwise have received extra education time to catch up on being behind in school not only missed out on this time but may have fallen further behind in school.
