    Oregon Department of Education


    The purpose of the 21st CCLC program is to provide opportunities for eligible applicants to establish or expand activities in community learning centers (ESSA, Sec. 4201 (a)). Provided services focus on helping children in low income schools succeed academically through the application of evidence-based practice and extended learning time by:

    • Providing opportunities for academic enrichment and tutorial services to help students (particularly students who attend low-performing schools) meet state performance standards, in core academic subjects such as reading, writing and mathematics, are aligned with district Comprehensive Achievement Plans (CAP) and aligned with ESSA goals (p 12) as outlined by ODE.
    • Offering students a broad array of additional services, programs and activities, such as youth development activities, service learning, nutritional 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 of occupation for high school students that are designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program of participating students; and
    • Offering 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.

    Only applicants that specifically address all three purposes identified for funding will be considered.

    The Oregon Department of Education awards grants only to applicants that primarily serve students who attend schoolwide Title I-A schools with Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL) rates of 50% or more. Priority will also be given to applications that:

    • Propose to serve students who attend schools identified for improvement (In Oregon, previously identified as Focus or Priority School).
    • Submit jointly between at least one LEA receiving funds under Title I-A and at least one public or private community organization.

    Special Rule: ODE shall provide the same priority to an application submitted by a LEA if the LEA demonstrates that it is unable to partner with a community-based organization in reasonable geographic proximity and of sufficient quality to meet the requirements of this part (4204 (i)(2)).
