Leon County Schools’ Intent to Apply for 21st CCLC Funding:
Under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the state of Florida has awarded grants to school and community-based organizations to operate 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) programs. This program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children. Leon County Schools intends to apply for funding for the 21st Century Community Learning Centers for Apalachee Tapestry Magnet, Riley, Hartsfield, Rueider, Bond and Oak Ridge Elementary Schools, Griffin and Raa Middle School. If you would like to provide feedback on the submission of the application or have any questions in regards to the 21st CCLC, please contact Dr. Elizabeth Glenn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If awarded, Leon County Schools will release a similar message notifying the community that the grant has been awarded and a brief synopsis of our program.
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.
