21st Century Community Learning Center Programs

Information for Parents

What is a 21st Century Community Learning Center Program?

A 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) grant is a competitive federal grant administered by the Ohio Department of Education to provide before- and after-school programming for families. Since 2003, the Muskingum Valley ESC has operated 21st CCLC programs in several different school districts serving kindergarten through 12th grades.

The mission of a 21st CCLC program is to serve students and families.  We nurture student growth by providing a safe place before and after school. The program expands learning beyond the regular school day by providing students and families with a range of high-quality services to support student learning and development, including tutoring, homework help, academic enrichment, clubs, family events and community service opportunities.  At the same time, programs help working parents by providing a safe environment for students during non-school hours.  Services vary according to program location and grade levels served.
