Title
21st Century Community Learning Center Brevard After School Academy South Grant FY2015/2016

Discussion

This project provides supplemental financial assistance for Brevard Public Schools to establish a successful partnership with community partners to provide quality after school activities for students and support for parents of children who attend four elementary schools in the South area: Palm Bay, Riviera, Roy Allen, and University Park.

Using funds from this project, the elementary schools will become 21st Century Learning Centers. The Brevard After School Academy program, will establish programs designed to use school sites and partner facilities after school to deliver hands-on learning experiences for up to 70 students at each site. Staffing, programming and bus transportation for eligible students will be provided by the grant funds.

If awarded, this five-year grant will consist of full funding the first two years. The third through the fifth years of the program will be funded at 80%. The 20% reduction will be in consumables and equipment.

There is no required match, in-kind or other, as a condition of this grant.
