    21st Century discipline policies align with Marion County Public Schools’ Code of Student Conduct. Behavior policies expected during the regular school day will carry over to the 21st CCLC program. Students must comply with district, school, and classroom policies. Dangerous, unsafe, or frequent misbehaviors will not be tolerated and will result in immediate dismissal from the program.



    Because all sessions are hands-on and project based, regular attendance is expected to ensure that students are able to fully participate and complete their projects. 


    Early Sign Out

    All students must be signed out from the front office by a parent/guardian if leaving the program early. 


    Student Pick-up  

    ALL students must be picked up at 5:35 pm front the front office. TWO or more late pick-ups will lead to termination from the program.

    September 25, 2019 (Early Release - No afternoon sessions)

  • About 21st Century Community Learning Centers

    The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) initiative is a key component of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Authorized under Title IV, Part B, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, the specific purposes of the federal law are to:


    • provide opportunities during non-school hours for academic enrichment, including providing tutorial services to help students, particularly students who attend low-performing schools, to meet the challenging State academic standards;
    • offer students a broad array of additional services, programs and activities during non-school hours such as youth development activities, service learning, nutrition and health education, drug and violence prevention programs, counseling programs, arts, music, physical fitness and wellness programs, technology education programs, financial literacy programs, environmental literacy programs, mathematics, science, career and technical programs, internship or apprenticeship programs, and other ties to an in-demand industry sector or occupation for high school students that are designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program of participating students; and
    • offer families of students served by community learning centers opportunities for active and meaningful engagement in their children’s education, including opportunities for literacy and related educational development.
