Applications will be reviewed and scored by a team of professionals representing the community associated with after school programs. All representatives will receive intensive training and then review and score applications at the 21st Century Community Learning Center Readers’ Conference. Readers will rate each application on its own merits against standardized scoring criteria defined in the rubric found in the Requests for Applications package. Each section will be scored and weighted according to the table below. All of the sections will then be added to determine the Core Application Narrative (CAN) score.
Each CAN has a maximum score of 100 points, as follows: (Priority points, if applicable, will be added to the CAN)
|A. Community Needs Assessment||15|
|B. Program Elements||30|
|D. Program Administration||25|
