    North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (DPI)


    Authorized under Title IV, Part B, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015, to provide opportunities for communities to establish or expand activities in community learning centers that”

    • Provide opportunities for academic enrichment, including providing tutorial services to help students, particularly students who attend low-performing schools, to meet the challenging State academic standards. The 21st CCLC program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide safe learning environments for students during non-school hours particularly students who attend high poverty and low-performing schools. Centers provide a range of services to support student learning and personal development. These services include, but are not limited to, tutoring and mentoring, homework assistance, academic enrichment (such as hands-on science or technology programs) community service opportunities, music, arts education, health education, cultural activities, and physical activity including sports. Activities need to be engaging as well as effective to ensure active student participation.
    • Offer students a broad array of additional services, programs, and activities, such as youth development activities, service learning, nutrition and health education, drug and violence prevention programs, counseling programs, arts, music, physical fitness and wellness programs, technology education programs, financial literacy programs, environmental literacy programs, mathematics, science, career and technical programs, internship or apprenticeship programs, and other ties to an in-demand industry sector or occupation for high school students that are designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program of participating students The program should be designed to improve academic achievement and to engage students in quality enrichment opportunities. For students who have not been successful in the regular day school, more of the same is not likely to produce success. In general, enrichment activities are multi-disciplinary whereby the student must use academic skills from multiple subject areas learned during the school day. Enrichment activities should also broaden students experiences by including the arts, recreation, health, and cultural activities.
    • Offer families of students served by community learning centers opportunities for active and meaningful engagement in their childrens education, including opportunities for literacy and related educational development. 21st CCLC programs must also offer families of participating students educational and personal development opportunities, particularly in the area of literacy and math. Effective 21st CCLC programs sponsor parent engagement opportunities designed to support a childs academic and social development that are different and more frequent than have been traditionally offered by the regular school day program.

    In 2018, the State provided competitive priority to proposals which: (1) Propose to serve underserved geographical regions of the state; (2) Are designed to implement programs for students attending Focus or Priority Schools; (3) Propose to provide a summer program component; or (4) Are novice applicants.
