21st Century Community Learning Center Grant

KDE-- Competitive Grants-  FY18 21st Century Community Learning Centers

RFA Application with Ammendments

As authorized under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), Title IV, Part B, Twenty-First Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC), the Office of Next Generation Schools and Districts is issuing a Request for Application (RFA) for local school districts, community and faith-based organizations, as well as other qualifying private and governmental organizations to design and implement effective out-of-school programs that improve student achievement and social development.

The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) program provides academic, artistic and cultural enrichment opportunities for children, particularly students who attend high–poverty and low-performing schools, to meet state and local standards in core academic subjects, such as reading, math and science.  The purpose is to provide students with homework assistance and a broad array of activities that can complement their regular academic programs while also promoting youth development; and to offer literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children. Programs must ensure the academic services they provide are aligned with the school’s curriculum in the core subject areas.

Bracken County Middle School has been awarded the 21st CCLC Grant for the start of the 2018-2019 school year!  Thanks to all community partners and staff who were involved with the grant writing process.

Our first order of business will be to accept applications for the 21st CCLC Co-ordinator's position.  If you are interested, go to the Employment tab of our district website and complete the on-line certified application.
