School Redesign

21st Century Community Learning Centers

Federally-funded 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) programs operate during out-of-school hours and engage students in challenging, creative, hands-on, project based activities that connect to and support school day programming while promoting self-expression, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. The 21st CCLC programs provide students with the opportunity to internalize their learning and gain a greater understanding of content areas by embedding academics into rich and engaging activities.

As a result of the ESEA approved flexibility, a portion of available FY14 Massachusetts 21st CCLC funding was allocated to a new competitive grant program (FY14 FC 647-B1A) that supports expanded learning time activities in a limited number of selected schools.
