In partnership with Commercial Township School District, Millville Public Schools will continue to offer a 21st Century Community Learning Center Program for 205 students from grades 4 through 5 at Haleyville Elementary School, Holly Heights Elementary School, Mt. Pleasant Elementary School, Rieck Avenue Elementary School, Silver Run Elementary School, RD Wood Elementary School and RM Bacon Elementary School.  Students at these schools have access to a 21st CCLC Program in grade 6 - 8 at the Port Norris Middle School and Lakeside Middle School.  We will coordinate with the middle school 21st CCLC programs for seamless transitioning.

The 21st CCLC Program will be held three hours after school during the school year and for four weeks in the summer.  Each school exceeds the poverty requirements.

The 21st CCLC Program at each school includes the following goals:

  1. To provide high-quality educational and enrichment programs that will enable students to improve academic achievement and promote positive behavior and appropriate social interaction with peers and adults.
  2. To implement activities that promote parental involvement and provide opportunities for literacy and related educational development to the families of participating students.
  3. To measure participants' progress and program effectiveness through monitoring and evaluating.

All schools will include academics, social, emotional and physical activities.  All schools have selected STEM to focus on the needs identified for their students, including the "Arts" for an all-inclusive STEAM focus.  Educational Information and Resource Center is our evaluator and participated in developing the evaluation plan. The evaluation plan is an Action Research Plan with details included in the activity plan of the application.
