Texas Partnership for Out of School Time

The Texas Partnership for Out of School Time (TXPOST) is a statewide network of nonprofit, public and private sector partners dedicated to increasing the quality and availability of out of school time (OST) opportunities for Texas youth. Founded in 2010 by a collaboration of public and private organizations, TXPOST pursues the development of statewide OST systems that will serve youth, families and communities across the state.

Current Projects and Initiatives: 
  • TXPOST is actively developing partnerships with OST stakeholders locally and across the state. TXPOST’s partnerships with diverse organizations across the state support the success of existing Regional OST Networks and advance the launch of new networks. 

  • TXPOST published the Texas Standard for High Quality Afterschool, Summer and Expanded Learning Programs, an essential step in the process of quality improvement and system building in OST programs. Understanding that each program is unique, serving diverse populations and subscribing to different missions while remaining committed to serving youth in grades K-12.
