With support from the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), the New Mexico Out-of-School Time Network (NMOST) is conducting a survey to gather information from out-of-school time (OST) providers concerning their program successes and barriers throughout New Mexico. OST programs are sets of activities that are implemented outside regular school hours, on weekends or during summer/holiday breaks. Eligible OST programs for this survey can be offered by a variety of organizations, including: school-based, non-profit, faith-based, and civic or government organizations.

Your responses to this survey will help capture data on existing OST programs offered in New Mexico. With your help we can map OST assets and gaps in or state and share voices from the field.  The results will be included in a summary report and disseminated to OST provider organizations, school districts and policymakers.

Please take a few minutes complete the survey below, which provides some basic information about your organization and the OST program(s) you offer (one survey per organization). 

We also ask that you provide more detailed information about your organization, programs and locations by adding or updating your profile in the SHARE New Mexico Resource Directory.

We need you to complete this survey by January 15, 2018.  If you have any questions, please contact May Sagbakken, NMOST Executive Director,  at msagbakken@explora.us.
