21st Century Community Learning Centers

Long Prairie-Grey Eagle School District has been awarded a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant. The award term is August 1, 2017-August 31, 2019.

The award supports the continuation of an existing 21st Community Learning Center that provides academic and enrichment opportunities during non-school hours (school-year and summer) for elementary and secondary students. The centers help students meet state and local standards in core academic subjects including reading, math, and science; offer students a broad array of high-quality enrichment activities that complement regular academic programs; and offer literacy and other educational services to the families of participating students. The centers also provide afterschool and summer school transportation and need-based scholarships for enrichment programs.

Program goals include increasing: academic achievement, school and community connectedness, and opportunities to develop and apply 21st-century skills.

"This initiative is made possible (or is funded in part) with a grant from the Minnesota Department of Education using federal funding, CFDA 84.287, Every Student Succeeds Act, Title IV B-21 Century Community Learning Centers".
