21st CCLC- What is it?
McGregor School District is the recipient of a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant that is funded through Federal Title IV dollars administered through the Minnesota Department of Education.
When you see any program or activity referenced as “21st CCLC” think quality and intentionality! Think “Community”, because that is where our impact will be seen in years to come. 21st CCLC provides activities and programs during out-of-school time year round. Each activity or program is designed to build skills that help participants thrive emotionally in school, build connections with positive adults and strengthen achievement. Activities align with state educational standards and work to support goals
defined in many state and local initiatives including World’s Best Workforce, PBIS, CSI, and others. The quality of each program is monitored for continuous improvement so that each interaction with youth is expected to have positive outcomes.
Currently 21st CCLC funds support these programs during out-of –school time.
