ABSTRACT  
This field-based study examined a multifaceted and multisystemic after school homework 
program intervention for at risk middle school students transitioning to high school. 
The program was developed and implemented by university and school-based personnel and 
incorporated evidence-supported strategies (i.e., peer tutoring, parent involvement, 
and collaborations between school districts and universities). Multiple measures were 
used to assess its effectiveness.  This after school intervention has promise as a 
model to improve homework behavior and academic outcomes for at risk students.
