21st Century After School Program at Griffin Middle School
Greetings and Salutations! My name is Tarran Jefferson and I will be serving as the 21st Century Coordinator at Griffin Middle School. I have several years of experience working with grant funded programs and I have been employed with Griffin Middle School for the past 12 years as one of the school counselors. I am super excited to be working as the program coordinator this year. We will be focusing on pinpointing areas that are students are needing additional support and resources to be successful, while enhancing their academic and social experiences. I look forward to working with the parents, students, and community stakeholders to make the GMS 21st Century Program a success.
21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC)
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.
