  • Notice of Funding for the release of the 2022-23 Request for Proposals (RFP) for the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) program, authorized under Title IV, Part B of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (TAPS Number 23B030).

    Leon County Schools submitted a proposal for a 21st Century Community Learning Centers program grant, for eligible students of:

    Godby High, Astoria Elementary, Pineview Elementary, Fairview Middle, Nims Middle, Ruediger Elementary and Rickards High Schools to be served in the areas mentioned below for the 2022-23 grant year. The purpose of the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Program, as described in federal statute, is to provide opportunities for eligible communities to establish or expand activities that focus on:

    1. Improved academic achievement.
    2. Enrichment services that reinforce and complement the academic program as well as social and emotional learning.
    3. Family engagement.

    Leon County Schools has received funding for 21st Century programs for the following schools in need of support:

    Godby High, Astoria Elementary, Fairview Middle, Nims Middle, Ruediger Elementary and Rickards High Schools.

    The community also lacks the resources to establish after-school centers that could benefit students. In addition, the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century program would help improve student attendance, behavior and student achievement of eligible students at the six schools.

    For questions regarding this submission, please contact Elizabeth Glenn, Program Director.

  • The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) initiative is a key component of the No Child Left Behind Act. Authorized under Title IV, Part B, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, the specific purposes of the federal law are to:

    • Provide opportunities for academic enrichment, including providing tutorial services to help students, particularly students who attend low-performing schools, to meet state and local student academic achievement standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and mathematics.
    • Offer students a broad array of additional services, programs, and activities, such as youth development activities, drug and violence prevention programs, counseling programs, art, music, and recreation programs, technology education programs and character education programs, that are designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program of participating students.
    • Offer families of students served by community learning centers opportunities for literacy and related educational development.
