Staffing Toolkit for Out-of-School Time Learning Programs

From planning to retention, get support in all phases of effective staffing.
Teachers are experiencing more burnout and job dissatisfaction than ever before, and many are leaving the profession entirely, causing challenges for many out-of-school time (OST) providers when hiring staff for their programs.

This toolkit from BellXcel's affiliate, Sperling Center for Research and Innovation (SCRI), helps OST providers implement evidence-based best practices when planning for hiring and retaining OST program staff.

The toolkit includes guidance, tip sheets, planning tools, and sample language for successful OST-program staffing and focuses on three distinct areas essential to achieving staffing success:
