The purpose of this quantitative research study was to examine the effectiveness regarding the essential components of the afterschool programming with K-8th grade targeted service students. This study also examined the effectiveness of afterschool programming interventions. Participants included 53 targeted services directors throughout the state of Minnesota. Results suggest rejecting all null hypotheses when examining the effectiveness of essential components of the afterschool programming with K-8th grade targeted service students. The study determined the areas of fostering positive relationships and understanding the needs and skills of youth were the most important components. Afterschool directors ranked professional development and parent involvement as the least important components. Interventions seen as being more crucial for a successful program were interventions for struggling readers and the interventions to target the student’s individual needs. Interventions that were seen by afterschool directors as being most crucial for a successful program were academic and developmental skill building.
