The Dallas County School District is proud to announce it has been awarded the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) grant. This is the third 21st CCLC grant the school district has received.

A second purpose is to offer students a broad array of additional services, programs, and activities; and finally to offer families of students served by the community learning centers, opportunities for active and meaningful engagement in their children’s education including opportunities for literacy and related educational development. The services will be free to families during the first year beginning October 21, 2019 and continuing through summer school, June 23, 2019.
