Title IV Part B - 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC)

About 21st CCLC

Please note that the Office of the State Superintendent of Education will not hold a 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant competition for the 2016-17 program year. All of the funds allocated to the District of Columbia are already dedicated to continuation grants until June 2017. Information regarding our next 21st CCLC competition will be posted Spring 2017.

Authorized under Title IV, Part B, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, the 21st CCLC program’s specific purposes are to: (1) provide opportunities for academic enrichment, including providing tutorial services to help students (particularly students in high-poverty areas and those who attend low-performing schools) meet State and local student performance 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, drug and violence prevention programs, counseling programs, art, music, and recreation programs, technology education programs, and character education programs, 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 literacy and related educational development.

For additional information, please see the US Department of Education's 21st CCLC non-regulatory guidance.
