21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) Waiver and Public Comment Request

RIDE intends to submit a request to the United States Department of Education (USED) to waive the requirement that restricts activities provided by a program funded under the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers program (21st CCLC) to activities provided only during non-school hours or periods when school is not in session (such as before and after school or during summer recess), during the 2020-2021 school year. The US Department of Education is allowing states to request this waiver and allow 21st CCLC programs to support student academic achievement and enrichment activities during school hours. Please see this additional information about the waiver request.
