Every year, through the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant Program (21st CCLC), the US Department of Education provides funding to State Education Agencies across the country, which is then regranted to Local Education Agencies. LEAs serving students who attend high-need schools utilize this program’s funding to support the creation and expansion of “community learning centers,” which provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for students. Funding can be used to help students meet state and local standards in core academic subjects, offer students a wide variety of enrichment activities, provide literacy and other educational services to students’ families, as well as a myriad of other supports.
What if we could teach remote students and physically-present students at the same time and achieve quality learning outcomes for both? We can! With the help of Microsoft Teams Meetings and HP, the Susquehanna Township School District in Pennsylvania designed an All Remote Access solution for its five campuses. Over 200 teachers are using this technology. Martin Schwarz from HP will share the Susquehanna case study, what was required to set-up & train teachers, and the results seen thus far.
Join Grants Office and special guests from HP as we dive into the federal 21st CCLC program requirements, discuss ways technology is being leveraged to support innovative, extended learning time practice, and offer tips on proposal development by taking a look at Pennsylvania’s 21st CCLC application process as an example. If you’re interested in pursuing this grant opportunity in your state, you definitely won’t want to miss out on this informative session!
