Grants to Idaho local education agencies, community-based organizations, tribes, public agencies, and private entities to provide after-school enrichment programs, primarily for students attending low-performing and high-poverty schools. A Letter of Intent is required prior to submission of the full proposal. Funding is intended to support academic tutoring services, youth development activities, and family engagement and education opportunities.

The program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, primarily those who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet challenging state academic standards and local academic standards.

The purpose of this part is to provide opportunities for communities to establish or expand activities in community learning centers that:

(1) Provide opportunities for academic enrichment, including providing tutorial services to help students, particularly students who attend low-performing schools, to meet the challenging State academic standards; (in core academic subjects, such as reading and mathematics)

(2) Offer students a broad array of additional services, programs, and activities, such as youth development activities, service learning, nutrition and health education, drug and violence prevention programs, counseling programs, arts, music, physical fitness and wellness programs, technology education programs, financial literacy programs, environmental literacy programs, mathematics, science, career and technical programs, internship or apprenticeship programs, and other ties to an in-demand industry sector or occupation for high school students that are designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program of participating students; and

(3) Offer families of students served by community learning centers opportunities for active and meaningful engagement in their children’s education, including opportunities for literacy and related educational development. 

In awarding subgrants under this part, a State educational agency shall give priority to applications: 

(A) Proposing to target services to—

(i) Students who primarily attend schools that—

(I) Are implementing comprehensive support and improvement activities or targeted support and improvement activities under section 1111(d) or other schools determined by the local educational agency to be in need of intervention and support to improve student academic achievement and other outcomes; and

(II) Enroll students who may be at risk for academic failure, dropping out of school, involvement in criminal or delinquent activities, or who lack strong positive role models; and

(ii) The families of students described in clause (i);

(B) Submitted jointly by eligible entities consisting of not less than 1—

(i) Local educational agency receiving funds under part A of title I; and

(ii) Another eligible entity; and

(C) Demonstrating that the activities proposed in the application—

(i) Are, as of the date of the submission of the application, not accessible to students who would be served; or

(ii) Would expand accessibility to high-quality services that may be available in the community.

Special Rule. —The State educational agency shall provide the same priority under paragraph (1) to an application submitted by a local educational agency if the local educational agency demonstrates that it is unable to partner with a community-based organization in reasonable geographic proximity and of sufficient quality to meet the requirements of this part.
