WY 21st CCLC State Program Goals

  • Goal 1: To establish community learning centers that help students in high-poverty, low-performing schools meet academic achievement standards
  • Goal 2: to offer a broad array of high-quality enrichment activities that are aligned with and complement the regular academic school day while positively affecting student outcomes such as school attendance and academic performance and decreasing behavioral risk factors
  • Goal 3: to provide programming to engage the families of 21st CLCLC participants for the purpose of increasing parent/family engagement in learning and developing resiliency through positive home/school relationships

Programs must be designed to meet the purpose of the 21st CCLC program and Wyoming goals.
