and Ms. Denise Davis, Program Director

We are off to a great start! St. Peters University partners with DLEACS to offer after an after school experience entitled the 21st Century Learning Center (21st CCLC). Under Title IV, Part B of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), 21st CCLC are defined as centers that provide opportunities for academic enrichment, including providing tutorial services to help students meet the challenging state academic standards. At DLEACS the core of the 21st CCLC is to provide:

  • Programs that build skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (referred to in this paragraph as 'STEM'), including computer science, as well as foster innovation in learning by supporting nontraditional STEM education teaching methods; and
  • Programs that partner with in-demand fields of the local workforce or build career competencies and career readiness and ensure that local workforce and career readiness skills are aligned with the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (20 U.S.C. 2301 et seq.) and the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (29 U.S.C. 3101 et seq.).
  • Well-rounded education activities, including those that enable students to be eligible for credit recovery or attainment;
  • Services for individuals with disabilities;
  • Afterschool activities for students that emphasize language skills and academic achievement;
  • Programs that support a healthy and active lifestyle, including nutritional education and regular, structured physical activity programs;
  • Programs that provide assistance to students who have been truant, suspended, or expelled to allow the students to improve their academic achievement.

We look forward to offering exciting programs for our students!
