Commissioner Announces $2.742 Million for Expanded Learning Time and Out-Of School Time Programs

MALDEN - Elementary and Secondary Education Commissioner Mitchell D. Chester today announced $2.761 million in 21st Century Community Learning Centers grants to expand learning time in some districts and, in others, offer enrichment programs after school and during the summer. These grants, which are federally funded, will reach approximately 4,000 students in 12 school districts.

"Students from high-need communities need more learning time to close the achievement gap," said Governor Charlie Baker. "These grants will make that extra time possible, while encouraging reforms to improve the quality of instruction throughout the school day."

"I am happy to announce these grants, which will strengthen students academically through in-school and out-of-school programs," Commissioner Chester said. "I look forward to seeing how these offerings engage students in everything from engineering to character education."
