Program Goals

Program goals and objectives particularly focused on student academic achievement, regular program attendance, family engagement, and community partnerships as follows: 

  • Increase student academic achievement in reading and math, and developed social emotional learning 
    • Regular attendees’ progress in math and reading will exceed rates of similar students who do not participate in the 21st CCLC program. 
    • 80% of students who regularly attend program will improve their Tier or remain in Tier 1, as determined by the well-being and behavior data recorded by the school. 
  • Increase sense of belonging and engagement for students in 21st CCLC program 
    • At least 10% of the total school population will regularly attend program. 
    • At least 60% of regular attendees will attend program for 60 days or more. 
    • Among regular attendees, data will not show differences in regular attendees or 60+ day attendees across race, ethnicity, or MLL groups. 
  • Develop and strengthen family-school connections for 21st CCLC families 
    • Family events offered by the 21st CCLC program will reflect the interests of families captured and measured using surveys and community-based organizations. 
    • At least 75% of regular attendees will have a family member attend at least one family event. 
    • 95% of families who attend and participate in family events will rate the event positively on surveys.
