Fund Code: 647-B-4

Purpose: The purpose of this federally-funded Massachusetts 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Summer Enhancement Pilot Grant is to significantly expand innovative summer learning programs that address both the academic and developmental needs of students.
Priorities:
  • To provide a minimum 144 hours (6 hours per day for 6 weeks) of summer 2013 programming for sustained, multi-year academic and developmental benefits.
  • To serve 10-15% more students during the summer 2013 than were served in the applicant's program during the summer 2012.
  • To provide access to a variety of innovative and engaging summer learning opportunities that address the comprehensive needs of students and increase motivation to learn through relevant, hands-on programming.
  • To provide a blended approach of academic learning and enrichment activities. This approach should address academic as well as school transition support efforts (e.g., for students who will be entering or just transitioned into elementary, middle, or high school); college and career awareness; experiential learning (e.g., workplace internships or service-learning); science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education; arts; and/or physical education.
  • To develop strong partnerships for planning and implementation efforts between schools, community organizations, and other public/private agencies in order to align and leverage resources, improve program quality, and develop shared outcomes for success.
  • To provide innovative shared professional development opportunities for teachers, administrators, and community-based partners.
