21st CCLC Initiative

The 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) initiative is a key component of the “No Child Left Behind” Act. It is an opportunity for students to enhance and reinforce academic lessons of the regular school day, while also allowing them to learn new skills and discover new opportunities after the regular school day has ended. The focus of this program, re-authorized under Title IV, Part B, of the No Child Left Behind Act, is to provide expanded academic enrichment opportunities for children attending low performing schools. Tutorial services and academic enrichment activities are designed to help students meet local and state academic standards in subjects such as reading and math. In addition 21st CCLC programs provide youth development activities, drug and violence prevention programs, technology education programs, art, music and recreation programs, counseling, and character education to enhance the academic component of the program.

 

Orlando ASAS 21st CCLC Grant

Through a generous grant from the FL-Department of Education’s 21st CCLC program, Orlando ASAS is able to offer increased educational services at two of our program sites. The grant provides for educational supplies, academic staff and transportation for all participating students. The funding has allowed these two sites to greatly increase the student population size and scope of the activities offered. The 2019-20 school year marks the fourth year of this five-year initiative.
