Making a Difference

Our goal is to provide academic enrichment activities designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program.

All activities are educationally based and must include services to students on an average of 15 hrs. per week.

Extended Learning Programs are funded by grants received from the U.S. Department of Education using federal funds under 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) and from the Tennessee Department of Education using state funds under the Lottery for Education Afterschool Program (LEAPs).

Enrollment for the 2013-14 Extended Learning Programs, LEAPs and 21st CCLC, will begin on August 12, 2013.

New for this school year, you may enroll your child in the LEAPs or 21st CCLC programs via the Online Registration Links.

Online Registration is temporarily CLOSED. Please contact your school's site coordinator for a registration form.
