Grants starting at $50,000 to Arizona LEAs, nonprofits, and tribes for programs to provide students with academic enrichment and safe activities during non-school hours. Funding is intended for schools where at least 40% of the students qualify for free or reduced meals.
The 21st CCLC programs must provide safe environments for students during non-school hours. Each grant program must serve students from one school site, where at least 40% of the students attending that school qualify for free/reduced meals; however, services may be offered at the school and at other locations. All centers must provide a range of high-quality services to support student learning and development.
The specific purposes of the relevant law are to:
(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;
(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, art, 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 education development.
(4) Grants funded by the 21st CCLC program may supplement, not supplant, existing out-of-school funding or programs.
