21st Century Community Learning Centers
Purpose The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) initiative is the only federally funded source dedicated exclusively to out-of-school-time programs.
Focus 21st CCLC programs throughout the state maintain a strong commitment to improving math, reading/language arts/literacy, and science. Complementing this primary focus, 21st CCLC programs in the State supplement the students’ regular academic school day by creating a rich variety of classes and activities outside of the instructional day that help students become proficient and connect with learning through project-based, hands on enrichment that is tied to real-world college and career application, and that build career competencies and readiness. This enrichment includes offerings in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), environmental literacy programs, art, music and physical education, mentoring, technology education including coding, and nutrition and health education.
Our school We offer a free before and after school program with a variety of enrichment opportunities. This year we are offering before school computer-based tutoring and after school programs such as an art, dance, karate, choir, culinary arts, sewing, and leadership opportunities. We believe that these experiences enhance our student’s lives and help them develop into more well-rounded learners.
- Classroom PBIS practices include preventative and responsive approaches that may be effectively implemented with all students in a classroom and intensified to support small groups or a few individual students.
- Systems refer to the structures and supports district and school leadership teams provide to enhance teachers’ implementation of classroom PBIS practices with fidelity.
- Data are an active, dynamic part of decision-making in the classroom that allow educators to identify patterns of strengths and needs. Those patterns drive decision making to continue, adopt, or modify classroom PBIS practices and systems.
