The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) program is a key component of the “No Child Left Behind Act” that is designed to help students meet state and local academic standards. The program funds academic enrichment and remediation services for children and their families. The 21st CCLC activities are offered after school at Lauderdale Lakes Middle and during the summer at no cost to the students or their families.
Our program provides Project Based Learning (PBL) instruction, academic remediation, tutoring, and homework assistance to increase student academic achievement. PBL activities support career and college readiness surrounding Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) fields and general career interest.
Daily student programming includes opportunities to participate in personal enrichment activities that support the social and emotional needs of students.
General goals: increased academic achievement, improved decision-making skills, engagement in career exploration, and increased parental involvement.
