21st Century Learning Center Grant

Cardinal applied for a 21st Century Learning Centers Grant. We are excited about this opporutnity to further serve students and provide extra supports to our families. We would like to have an elementary and secondary after school program,  and an elementary summer program. Here are some of the details outlining the proposed programs:

Elementary Afterschool Program (5 days a week 3:30-5:30): 
  • provide academic assistance to students
  • enrichment opportunities/centers
  • accommodate working families
  • healthy snacks

Elementary Summer Program June-August 8:15-3:30
  • provide full day summer school (this will help with student regression over summer months) 
  • literacy and math instruction with elective courses in the afternoon
  • field trip opportunities for kids
  • community partnerships activities
  • healthy lunch
  • early morning childcare 6:00-8:15 AM and after school care 3:30-5:30 PM
  • busing for students

Secondary Afterschool Program (3 days a week):

  • provide homework help and completion
  • community partnerships focusing on college and career readiness 
  • mentoring
  • STEM activities/enrichment
  • guest speakers
 Indian Hills Community College, Libertyville Savings Bank, Living Hope Bible Church, Iowa State Extension Office, Golden Furrow, and the AEA  have all agreed to partner with the district if we receive the grant.  

If we receive the  grant, we will send information on staffing and compensation for the proposed programs. 

This is an an exciting opportunity for our students and one that can make a difference in their academic success. We will know whether or not Cardinal receives the grant this spring. Please let me know if you'd like more information over the proposed programs. 

Have a great day!
