Grant Assists Learning Center, After School Program
The Colorado Department of Education has recently released a new grant application for 21st Century Community Learning Center funding.
The Lake County School district has held two 21st Century Community Learning Center grants in the past. The purpose of this grant is to establish or expand community learning centers that provide students with academic enrichment opportunities along with activities designed to reinforce and complement the students’ regular academic program. Our intermediate school and high school are eligible to apply since our funding has recently ended. The Lake County School District is in the process of applying for an additional five years to continue to fund our after school programs and explore the possibility of extended learning time for our students. If you would like to learn more about this grant opportunity or give us your input, please call Susan Fishman at 719-293-0115 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
