Grant Sought for 21st Century
Community Learning Centers

The St. Tammany Parish School Board’s current 21st Century Community Learning Center Program intends to submit an application for funding for a new three-year 21st CCLC grant. The request is to finance the program from September 1, 2019 to August 31, 2022.

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

(A) 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;

(B) 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 programs, counseling programs, arts, music, physical fitness and wellness programs, technology programs, financial literacy programs, environmental literacy programs, mathematics, science and career and technical programs; and

(C) 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.

The target schools for this proposal are Brock Elementary School, 259 Brakefield, Slidell; Chahta-Ima Elementary School, 27488 Pichon Road, Lacombe; Riverside Elementary, 38480 Sullivan Drive, Pearl River; Pine View Middle School, 1200 W. 27th Avenue, Covington; and the private schools in the surrounding areas.

The proposal for the 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant will be available to review after May 8, 2019 at the St. Tammany Parish School Board Office, 321 N. Theard Street, Covington, LA 70434.
