The overarching goal of the Kent Connects, the 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) program in Kent School District, is to support students’ academic achievement.  The program is located at Meeker and Mill Creek Middle Schools, and focuses on: 

  • Increasing academic achievement 
  • Improving learning behaviors in the classroom 
  • Social emotional well-being 
  • Preparing students for success in high school and real world post high school opportunities  

The program approached this work through a lens of trust and relationship building both with teaching/school staff as well as with students and families. The 21st CCLC program operated for six years, from 2016-17 through 2021-22.
