21ST CENTURY COMMUNITY LEARNING CENTER Application for East Dover Elementary School

East Dover Elementary School in collaboration with the Capital School District will be applying for a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant through the Delaware Department of Education.  The program will support the following areas:

  • Provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools

  • Offer students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs

  • Help students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math

  • Offer literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children 

The Delaware Department of Education manages statewide competitions and awards subgrants to eligible entities.  For this program, "eligible entity" means a local education agency (LEA), community-based organization, another public or private entity, or, ideally, a consortium of two or more of such agencies, organizations, or entities.  States must give priority to applications that are jointly submitted by an LEA and a community-based organization or other public or private entity.  Consistent with this definition of eligible entities, faith-based organizations are eligible to participate in the 21st Century Community Learning Centers program.

Subgrant awards for 21CCLC programs are for a period of 3 to 5 years.  Subgrantees must primarily serve students who attend schools that are eligible as Title I schoolwide programs (40% or higher poverty level, based on the Expanded Poverty definition).  Subgrantees must offer opportunities for families to actively and meaningfully engage in their children's education.  (A component of this may include family member and caregiver literacy programs).  Subgrantees are required to submit a "Sustainability Plan" describing how the community learning center will continue after 21st CCLC funding ends.
