About 21st CCLC

Authorized under Title IV, Part B, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended, 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.

2020-21 School Year School Day Programming Flexibility Waiver

The United States Department of Education has announced new flexibility available for State 21st CCLC programs for the 2020-21 school year.

Typically, 21st CCLC programs are required to operate “during non-school hours or periods when school is not in session.” With this waiver, the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) is able to approve 21st CCLC programs to provide supplemental activities when school is in session but when students are not receiving in-person instruction, such as by permitting a teacher to provide additional academic supports during remote learning.

For more information on the waiver, please review OSSE’s Guidance Related to Coronavirus (COVID-19): 21st CCLC Frequently Asked Questions.
