Theory of Action

The development of the Quality Action Plan is informed by the Theory of Action and driven by data. The QAP improvement process helps sites to strategically plan and reflect on their practice. Intentional design and implementation of high quality programs will contribute to positive benefits for youth.

ExCEL’s Theory of Action illustrates how intentional program design and implementation creates high quality programming and impacts student success. More than 20,000 students are served by ExCEL after school programs annually. Providing high quality after school experiences for these youth can result in positive benefits that may contribute towards their success in school and life. ExCEL’s Quality Action Plan is informed by this Theory of Action and grounded in the values of growth mindset. ExCEL after school programs participate in a structured planning & reflection journey to learn, grown, and provide high quality programs for SFUSD students.

Creating Systems & Structures that Support Program Quality

ExCEL partners with school sites and community based organizations (CBOs) to build a  strong system of support. This system supports our site programs in creating and  implementing high quality after school experiences for SFUSD students.
