Dr. Wendy McColskey (SERVE Center) received new funding from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction for the project “2019-2020 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Cohort 14 Level I Grant Application Review and 2018-2019 Annual Evaluation Reporting.”
SERVE will conduct the Level I application reviews of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Cohort No. 14 grant applications in the spring/summer of 2019 and 2) conduct Cohort No. 12 and No. 13 evaluation activities for the 2018-19 school year.
The 21st CCLC supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities (i.e., before, during and/or after school programming) for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.
