General Information

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 was signed into law in January 2002, authorizing the California Department of Education (CDE) to administer California's 21st Century Community Learning Centers CCLC) Program. Education Code sections 8484.7 - 8484.9 further defines California's 21st CCLC Program. This state-administered, federally funded program provides five-year grant funding to establish or expand before-and after-school programs that provide disadvantaged kindergarten through twelfth-grade students (particularly students who attend schools in need of improvement) with academic enrichment opportunities and supportive services to help the students meet state and local standards in core content areas.

The 21st CCLC Program, as described in federal statute, provides opportunities for communities to establish or expand activities that focus on:

  1. Improved academic achievement
  2. Enrichment services that reinforce and complement the academic program
  3. Family literacy and related educational development services

Entities eligible to apply for funding from the CDE include: LEAs, cities, counties, community-based agencies, other public or private entities (which may include faith-based organizations), or a consortium of two or more such agencies, organizations, or entities. Applicants are required to plan their programs through a collaborative process that includes parents, youth, and representatives of participating schools or local educational agencies, governmental agencies (e.g., cities, counties, parks and recreation departments), community organizations, and the private sector.

Grantees are required to maintain grant and program records and provide the CDE access to those records as the CDE deems necessary.
