Leon County Schools submited a 21st Century Community Learning Centers proposal and was awarded for eligible students of Bond Elementary, Oak Ridge Elementary, Apalachee Elementary, Riley Elementary, Hartsfield Elementary, and Griffin Middle Schools to be served in for the 2020-2021 school year.
Apalachee, Astoria Park, Bond, Hartsfield, Oak Ridge, Pineview, Riley, Sabal Palm, Springwood, Cobb, Griffin, Nims, and Godby all have virtual 21st Century Programs! If your student needs homework help or help understanding what they are learning during the school day, reach out to that school's site coordinator!
The 21st Century programs will be doing a hybrid model for the fall programming. Each site will have a percentage of students learning in person and another precentage of students learning virtually. Currently, our participating schools are: Apalachee, Astoria Park, Bond, Hartsfield, Oak Ridge, Pineview, Riley, Sabal Palm, Springwood, Cobb, Griffin, Nims, and Godby. If your child is a registered student at one of these locations and are interested in participating, please contact that schools Site Coordinator.
As Coronavirus continues to affect our region, we want to reassure you that the safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Our district is working in collaboration with the City of Tallahassee, Leon County, the Leon Health Department, FSU, FAMU, TCC, Capital Health Plan, TMH, and more on a community response. All K-12 schools in Florida will continue to use distance learning through the end of the school year, according to Gov. Ron DeSantis. The 21st Century Program will follow all district precautions and follow the lead of our Superintendent.
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.
The 21st CCLC program is a free program offering both after-school and summer programs to students at the school sites listed below:
