Using NCLB Funds to Support Extended Learning Time: Opportunities for Afterschool Programs (New)
Ayeola Fortune, Heather Clapp Padgette, and Lucinda Fickel
The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) includes a section that provides federal funding solely for afterschool programs called the 21st Century Community Learning Centers program. There are, however, several other funding streams in NCLB that can support extended learning opportunities as well. The purpose of this brief is to describe each of these funding streams and to discuss how they could be used to benefit and support afterschool programs. The brief provides a brief introduction to NCLB, followed by sections explaining the funding streams, which include Title I, School Improvement, Supplemental Educational Services, Comprehensive School Reform, Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities, and Innovative Programs. Tips for accessing these funds are also included. (32 pages)
