21st Century Community Learning Center Grant 2009-2010 (Zoo Explorers)
Brevard Public Schools Office of Adult and Community Education will partner with the Brevard Zoo and a Health and Fitness Center, to provide quality after-school services for students and support for parents of children who attend four elementary schools: Cambridge, Endeavour, Golfview and Saturn.
Using funds from this project, these schools will become 21st Century Community Learning Centers. The "Zoo Explorers" program is designed to use classrooms at the Brevard Zoo for science lessons with bus transportation costs and tuition scholarships for eligible students provided by the grant funds. The Health and Fitness Provider will address childhood obesity and will bring a health, nutrition and exercise program into the schools as part of the grant.
