21st Century Learning Centers Seek External Organizations

CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) is developing a list of prescreened nonprofit organizations that provide expanded learning programs, curriculum, and activities to youth.

Eligible organizations interested in supporting the work of after school and summer learning, are invited to submit a profile survey by February 8, 2019.

Under Title IV, Part B of the Every Student Succeeds Act, these programs must have a record of success in running or working with before and after school or summer recess programs, or be in partnership with such a program to be listed. To meet the requirements for a record of success, organizations must demonstrate that they:

  • Operate as a nonprofit in good standing in Wyoming.
  • Have a minimum five years of experience operating and/or implementing expanded learning programs outside the regular school day for school-age children and youth in Wyoming.
  • Provide a statement of success that describes the organization’s quantitative or qualitative measures of success in local programs for at least the past two years.

“Every student should have access to enrichment opportunities during non-school hours and 21st CCLC is one way to help achieve that,” said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow. “These programs inspire, spark interest, and help students be successful in school.”
