In the summer of 2008, two of our Geographic Information System (GIS) students, Matt McDonald and Taylor Hafley, began to examine where after school programs are located in comparison to where students who need them live. Their work was continued by a GIS class led by Professor Olga Medvedkov in the Fall of 2008. Students mapped the locations of all afterschool programs in Clark County. For every program, the class researched 38 data fields, including contact information and eligibility requirements to grades and areas of academic concentration served.

This work laid the foundation for the interactive database located on this website!
