Two PWC schools get Va. Dept, of Education grants for 21st Century Community Learning Centers

The Virginia Department of Education is awarding 37 new grants to fund 21st Century Community Learning Centers in communities across the commonwealth. The grants range from $50,000 to $200,000 and will allow school divisions, faith-based organizations, and community groups to provide students with tutoring and enrichment activities that complement regular academic programs.

Community learning centers operate before and after school, during school breaks, Saturdays, and during summer vacation. The centers also provide educational services for families of participating children. Applicants for the grants were encouraged to consult with parents, community groups, businesses, arts and cultural organizations, and other youth development agencies to develop their applications and programs.

“The community learning centers funded with these grants will support the efforts of schools as they address the impact of the pandemic on students through accelerated instruction and extended learning, such as summer and after-school programs,” Superintendent of Public Instruction James Lane said. “I would like to thank all of our new recipients for collaborating with partners in their communities and developing proposals for 21st Century Community Learning Centers that will help our schools and students fully recover.”

In Prince William County grant recipients and schools hosting new 21st Century Community Learning Centers in 2021-2022 are Kilby Elementary School and Gar-Field High School, both in Woodbridge.
