MATIAS, Neyfsom Carlos Fernandes  and  TEODORO, Maycoln Leôni Martins. School performance and participation in activities of a full-time program program. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2019, vol.36, n.111, pp.305-316. ISSN 0103-8486.

This article reports the results of a study whose objective was to identify differences between participants and nonparticipants in the extracurricular activities of a full-time program, linked to a public school in Belo Horizonte (MG), in school performance. Ninety-nine students enrolled in the 4th and 5th years of schooling participated in the study, 43 males and 56 females, with a mean age of 9.99 years (SD=0.61). The results indicated evidence of improvement in the school performance of participants in activities related to public programs, and the offer of academic actions has the potential to offer positive impacts. In addition, these types of actions guarantee the right to social protection, as well as access to the artistic and recreational activities of its participants. It is concluded that students from disadvantaged social strata can improve school performance by participating in structured extracurricular activities, complementing the proximal processes developed in the family that drive academic learning.
