The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends reading-focused academic programs outside of regular school hours to improve reading achievement. The recommendation applies to programs for students in kindergarten through 3rd grade who are either low-achieving or at risk of low achievement. Programs must include an academic component that includes intensive tutoring or remedial classes focused on reading. CPSTF found that ongoing school and social environments that support learning are also essential to improve academic achievement in later years.
