Wallace Updates Popular Cost Calculator for Out-of-School-Time Programs
The Wallace-commissioned Out-of-School-Time (OST) Cost Calculator is an online tool designed to help OST providers and others estimate the costs of delivering a variety of afterschool and summer programs.
It works like a student loan or mortgage calculator and bases its estimates on the most detailed study to date on the costs of high-quality programs. Now it’s been updated with 2015 numbers—by the lead researcher on that study—to reflect changes in both the general cost of living nationally and the relative cost of living across cities. . . .
