21st Century Community Learning Centers
21st Century Community Learning Centers [CCLC] provide Before and After-School Programs for students to receive academic, artistic and cultural enhancement opportunites when school is not in session. The primary goal of 21st Century CCLC is to provide academic enrichment opportunities to assist students with the skills necessary to meet state and local standards for core subject areas, such as: reading and mathematics.
To support students academically, assistance with homework, tutoring, math and reading remediation, high school credit recovery courses for students in grades 9-12, and enrichment clubs based on student interest for students in grades 3-8 is available.
In addition to academic enrichment, CCLC may also offer a broad array of other services and programs, including: art, music, service learning, character education, drug and violence prevention programming, recreation activities and technology education. Supplementary services for parents, such as literacy instruction may also be available.
The 21st CCLC program meets Monday through Thursday during the school year.
CCLC Program Eligibility
CCLC program eligibility is determined by each student's individual needs. Generally, students are classified in two categories: targeted and non-targeted students.
"Targeted Students" who fall below grade-level achievement are eligible to participate in the 21st Century Program at no-cost.
"Non-Targeted Students," at or above grade-level achievement, who voluntarily elect to attend the program may also participate for a nominal fee if program space permits.
