OVERVIEW OF THE PROGRAM
Lumpkin County 21st Century Community Learning Center (LCCLC) is an elementary school after school program that serves 2nd-5th graders and their families. Second-Fifth grade students are eligible for 21st CCLC based on academic and/or economic needs. Students are referred to the after school program based upon standardized test scores and teacher recommendations. Registration and enrollment will be held on August 20th and August 25 in the BES media center. The goals of the LCCLC are to increase math and reading achievement and provide services to families.
Students benefit from individual homework assistance and tutoring, creative math and reading instruction, and engaging enrichment activities. With a low teacher to student ratio, students can thrive from instruction tailored to their needs and learning styles.
For children to achieve success in such a program, it must supplement and yet be different from typical daytime instruction. LCCLC teachers present students with engaging and hands-on instruction.
LCCLC’s purpose is to extend learning from the classroom walls with community partnerships. The program is fortunate to have strong partners who are concerned with student achievement and family services. Community organizations volunteer their time and resources to provide our students with exciting and educational activities. An Advisory Council exists and meets periodically to assess and respond to school and community needs and gaps in academic and social services.
The Lumpkin County Literacy Coalition provides educational opportunities for participating families. Families can benefit from individual literacy instruction. The trained Literacy Coalition volunteers will work with family members to achieve literacy and GED goals.
Together, through this Community Learning Center, we can offer superior services to the children and families of Lumpkin County.
