Putnam County School District,  Intent to Apply for 21st CCLC Funding:

Under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the state of Florida has awarded grants to school and community-based organizations to operate 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) programs. This program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children. Putnam County Schools intends to apply for funding for the 21st Century Community Learning Centers for:

Melrose Elementary School
Middleton-Burney Elementary School
Ochwilla Elementary School
James A. Long Elementary School
C. H. Price Middle School 
C.L. Overturf, Jr. Sixth Grade Center
Eleanor H. Miller School

If you would like to provide feedback on the submission of the application or have any questions in regards to the 21st CCLC, please contact Program Coordinator, Justin Campbell at [email protected] 

If awarded, Putnam County School District will release a similar message notifying the community that the grant has been awarded and a brief synopsis of our program.
