This program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children. 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.

The grant that we received for this program establishes that:

Each eligible entity that receives an award from the state may use the funds to carry out a broad array of before- and after-school activities (including those held during summer recess periods) to advance student achievement.

These activities include: 

 • Remedial education activities and academic enrichment learning programs, including those that provide additional assistance to students to allow the students to improve their academic achievement;
• Mathematics and science education activities;
• Arts and music education activities;
• Entrepreneurial education programs;
• Tutoring services, including those provided by senior citizen volunteers, and mentoring programs;
• Programs that provide after-school activities for limited English proficient (LEP) students that emphasize language skills and academic achievement;
• Recreational activities;
• Telecommunications and technology education programs;
• Expanded library service hours;
• Programs that promote parental involvement and family literacy;
• Programs that provide assistance to students who have been truant, suspended, or expelled to allow them to improve their academic achievement;
• Drug and violence prevention programs;
• Counseling programs; and
• Character education programs.
