Program Purpose

The purpose of the 21st CCLC program is to provide extended learning opportunities outside of the regular school day to students in need of academic assistance. The program is aimed at  students who attend high-need, high-poverty and low-performing schools.

The overall program is inclusive of specific core elements based on recommended principles and effective strategies to ensure successful programs that will assist students in meeting academic standards in core subjects (math, reading, science, social studies) so they can graduate from high school prepared for college and/or the workforce.

The Texas 21st CCLC program strives to improve academics, attendance, behavior, promotion, and graduation rates, all of which are in keeping with the overarching TEA goal of all students graduating prepared for postsecondary education and/or the workforce.
