Out-of-School Time

    The purpose of the federally funded 21st CCLC grant is to support the implementation of additional learning time through out-of-school time (OST) programming and/or through an expanded day referred to as Expanded Learning Time (ELT). Programming is designed to help close proficiency/opportunity gaps, increase student engagement, support social and emotional learning, and promote college and career readiness and success.  This programming will provide students with engaging instruction, project-based and/or service-learning experiences, and opportunities for academic enrichment to providing high quality out of school time academic enrichment opportunities.. These programs will also engage with various community partners to support students' learning, as well as social/emotional and physical development.
