- 21st Century Schools
- Series Description
An Educational Programming series developed in conjunction with SEDL and based on the U.S. Department of Education’s 21st Century Community Learning Centers program. The National Partnership's Afterschool Training Toolkit is a free staff development resource aimed at helping practitioners create engaging activities that build students' academic skills. These tools aim to help you understand and implement enjoyable afterschool practices that build academic skills. The content is based on research, including site visits to effective programs all over the U.S.
It is an opportunity for students and their families to continue to learn new skills and discover new abilities after the school day has ended. The focus of this program, re-authorized under Title IV, Part B, of the No Child Left Behind Act, is to provide expanded academic enrichment opportunities for children attending low performing schools. Tutorial services and academic enrichment activities are designed to help students meet local and state academic standards in subjects such as reading and math. In addition 21st CCLC programs provide youth development activities, drug and violence prevention programs, technology education programs, art, music and recreation programs, counseling and character education to enhance the academic component of the program. Series release date: 2005
