2016 ASES Daily Rate Survey
In February 2016, the Partnership for Children & Youth, with the help of partner organizations and regional networks, distributed a second online survey to expanded learning programs across the state to gain further insight on the impact of the current ASES daily rate coupled with increasing cost pressures, including the second minimum wage increase that went into effect January 1, 2016. 2 676 respondents completed the survey, 95% (631) of whose programs receive ASES funding. 72% (455) of ASES-funded respondents took the additional time to fill out descriptive responses on the specific negative impacts in their community (see page 5-8). The survey respondents represented more than 250 school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools reflecting the diversity of the state; urban to rural districts, multi-district to single school programs, and programs operated both by school districts and community-based organizations.
