Title
21st Century Community Learning Center Brevard After School Academy: East Grant FY 2018-2019

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 three elementary schools in the South East area: Harbor City, Palm Bay, and Riviera Elementary Schools.
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 50 students at each school. Staffing and programming for eligible students will be provided by the grant funds.
If awarded, this five year grant will consist of full funding the five years. It is projected that the amount written for will be between $350,000-$400,000, and will be determined by the final student number projections. There is no required match, in-kind or other, as condition of this grant.
In order to meet the FLDOE August 10, 2018 deadline the application was signed by the superintendent on August 06, 2018. A final copy of the application is available for review in the department of Adult & Community Education.
