WHEREAS, according to the National Center for Juvenile Justice, children are at greater risk of being involved in crime, substance abuse, and teenage pregnancy in the hours after school, especially between the hours of 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.; and

WHEREAS, the most common activity for children after school is watching television, resulting in an average 23 hours of television watching per week; and

WHEREAS, the parents of more than 800,000 Missouri school-age children work outside the home; and

WHEREAS, according to the estimates of the Urban Institute of the United States Census Bureau, at least 7 million and as many as 15 million "latchkey children" return to an empty house on any given afternoon; and

WHEREAS, in the United States, families worry about their children being unsafe and having too much idle, unsupervised time; and

WHEREAS, the United States Departments of Education and Justice report that children in quality out-of-school programs have better academic performance, school attendance, behavior, and greater expectations for the future; and

WHEREAS, children who attend high quality out-of-school programs have better peer relations, emotional adjustment, conflict resolution skills, grades, and conduct in school compared to their peers who are not in out-of-school programs; and

WHEREAS, children who attend out-of-school programs spend more time in learning opportunities, academic activities, and enrichment activities, and spend less time watching television than their peers; and

WHEREAS, children who attend out-of-school programs miss fewer days of school, have better homework completion, better school behavior, and higher test scores; and

WHEREAS, 92% of all Americans believe there should be organized activities for all youth during out-of-school hours; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the committee, in consultation with the Departments of Elementary and Secondary Education, Social Services, and all other relevant agencies, make recommendations for an efficient and effective development plan to provide the opportunity for every Missouri school-age child to access quality out-of-school programs and design a system to train, mentor, and support out-of-school programs, and thereby guarantee their sustainability; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the committee be authorized to hold hearings as it deems advisable, and that the staffs of Senate Research, House Research, and the Committee on Legislative Research provide such legal, research, clerical, technical, and bill drafting services requested by the committee; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the General Assembly endorses all of state government to enthusiastically encourage our citizens to engage in innovative out-of-school programs and activities that ensure that all Missouri school-age children are not only safe, but also productive when the school day ends; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the committee report its recommendations and findings to the General Assembly by January 1, 2005, and the authority of such committee shall terminate on December 31, 2004, unless reauthorized.
