21st Century Community Learning Center Grant (Discretionary/Continuation) 2008-2009 (Zoo I)
Brevard Public Schools in partnership with Brevard Zoo provides quality after-school activities for students, and support for the parents of children, who attend two elementary schools: Cambridge Elementary and Endeavour Elementary Magnet Schools.
Using funds from this project, Endeavour and Cambridge Elementary Schools have become 21st Century Community Learning Centers. The "Zoo Explorers" program in partnership with Brevard Zoo has provided a successful after-school and summer program for Brevard students. The program uses Zoo classrooms and school facilities after school for experiential math and science lessons. Bus transportation costs and tuition scholarships for eligible students are provided by the grant funds.
Copies of the application for renewal of funds will be located in the Adult and Community Education Director's office and the Adult Education grant office at North Area Adult Education Center.
Approve the continuation application for the fifth year of the 21st Century Community Learning Center for Adult and Community Education in the amount of $288,000.
