The 21st Century Community Learning Center program is authorized under Title IV, Part B of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The 21st CCLC grantees in Georgia are required to provide academic enrichment opportunities in before school and after-school activities (including the summer) for schools with high levels of students receiving free or reduced lunches. These activities help advance student achievement and meet the local and state academic standards in the areas such as reading, mathematics, and science.
The Rabun County 21st Century Community Learning Center (RCCLC) Project was awarded during the summer of 2019. The Rabun County project established a program targeting 250 at-risk students at Rabun County Primary School and Rabun County Elementary School who performed below proficiency in reading and/or mathematics on the Milestones assessment or have difficulty passing their classes. The RCCLC after school program operates from 3:15-5:40 p.m. Monday through Friday for 26 weeks during the school year. The summer school program operates during the month of June and provides a STEAM Camp opportunity. Camp activities are designed for specific grade levels each week and registration is limited to 50 participants per week.
Academic and enrichment activities are delivered by certified and/or trained personnel that supplement the traditional school activities and allow for academic and personal growth. The project focuses on meeting the needs of all students served and their families.
