21st Century Community Learning Center Grant 2011/2012 Zoo III
This project provides supplemental financial assistance for Brevard Public Schools to establish a successful partnership with Brevard Zoo, Health First Pro-Health & Fitness Center, and Melbourne Police Athletic League to provide quality after-school activities for students and support for the parents of children who attend four elementary schools, Dr. W.J. Creel, Croton, Sabal, and Sherwood Elementary schools.
Using funds from this project, Dr. W. J. Creel, Croton, Sabal, and Sherwood Elementary schools will become 21st Century Community Learning Centers. The "Zoo Explorers III" program, in partnership with Brevard Zoo, Health First Pro-Health & Fitness, and Melbourne Police Athletic League, will establish programs designed to use school sites and Zoo facilities after school. 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 not any required match, in-kind or other, as a condition of this grant.
