OKLAHOMA CITY (June 1, 2018) – The Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) is seeking applicants from schools and community organizations for 2018-19 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) grants.

21st CCLC programs provide expanded learning opportunities during out-of-school time for students who attend high-poverty, low-performing schools. Through partnerships between local schools and community organizations, these programs offer enrichment activities that complement school-day learning and help students meet state and local achievement standards.


Among the opportunities the program offers are literacy training and related educational development for families of students served by the community learning centers.


The following are examples of the diverse programs funded by 21st Century Community Learning Centers grants. In 2017-18, 10 new grants were awarded, bringing the total to 59 grantees across Oklahoma serving 14,000 students.
