The Cameron School District is pursuing a 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant through the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. This grant provides funding that ranges from $80,000 up to a maximum of $145,000 annually for up to five years. Authorized under Title IV, Part B of ESEA, and targeting schools and communities in need of services, the purpose of the 21st CCLC program is threefold. Funded entities must:
- Provide opportunities for academic enrichment to assist students in meeting the state academic standards;
- Offer students access to a broad array of additional services, such as those that focus on youth development, social emotional learning, civic engagement, and nutritional and physical health; and
- Offer adult family members of program participants opportunities for educational development and engagement in their children’s education.
Cameron is targeting a program that would be offered after school at Cameron Elementary School for students in grades K through 6th. The 21st Century Grant will be a key component to be able to get a program of this magnitude up and running.
As part of this process, the Cameron School District is requesting the feedback of its parents and has developed a brief survey to help us assess the level of interest and need related to this programming. This survey can be accessed directly at the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZD2VT5T. Information related to this grant opportunity can also be accessed on the District’s webpage at www.cameron.k12.wi.us. Parents interested in completing this survey must do so no later than January 25. Any questions related to this grant can be directed to District Administrator – Joe Leschisin firstname.lastname@example.org.
