The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) serves as a supplementary program to enhance local reform efforts. The program assists students in meeting academic standards in core subjects (math, reading, science, social studies) by providing out-of-school time services to students and their families through community learning centers that offer an array of enrichment activities to complement regular academic programs.
Proven Dropout Prevention Strategies
The Texas Education Agency focuses state and federal resources on identifying and replicating proven strategies for dropout prevention and recovery. 21st CCLC provides targeted academic support to address skill gaps and enrich the learning environment for students who are off track and struggling.
The ASPIRE program operates Monday-Friday morning from 7:00 a.m -8:00 a.m and Monday-Thursday after school, from 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 a.m. Early Dismissal from Aspire is permitted between 4:30-4:45 each day.
Along with all the great activities, ASPIRE also offers both hot and cold meals for students.
