520    In recent years, a host of long-term trends -- including 
       an increase in the number of working parents, a rise in 
       violent incidents involving children, and a move toward 
       academic accountability -- have led the American public to
       pay increasing heed to how and where their children spend 
       their time after school. In response to these growing 
       concerns, the past decade has seen a steady increase in 
       the number of programs devoted to after-school care. Yet 
       this proliferation of after-school programs has brought 
       with it a concomitant need for sound program evaluation. 
       Accordingly, this report summarizes RAND's effort to gauge
       the effectiveness of Stone Soup Child Care Programs, a 
       nonprofit organization that administers school-based after
       -school care to children throughout California. In pursuit
       of its goal, RAND undertook three tasks: a thorough review
       of the literature, carried out to identify relevant "best 
       practices"; the development and implementation of a data 
       collection tool designed to measure Stone Soup's adherence
       to such practices; and a thoroughgoing analysis of the 
       data compiled. After collecting extensive data from Stone 
       Soup's central office and site supervisors, RAND concluded
       that, on average, Stone Soup does a competent job of 
       adhering to good practices. At the same time, however, 
       RAND's synthesis of the literature revealed a paucity of 
       reliable studies on what practices constitute the 
       provision of quality care. More research must therefore be
       conducted to better identify sound management practices in
       the critical arena of after-school care. The tool is 
       included in the report to be useful for practitioners or 
       funding organizations interested in evaluating how well 
       after-school care programs are adhering to currently 
       recognized practices.
