Title of Collection: 21st Century Community Learning Centers: Lessons Learned Guides.
OMB Control Number: Pending.
Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 960.
Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 780.
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to produce guides for the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) program that will assist the U.S. Department of Education (ED) staff in providing technical assistance to grantees on the following four topics: (1) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math; (2) English Learners; (3) Career and Technical Education; and (4) structures to increase learning time. ED will identify 21st CCLC subgrantees that are implementing activities in a manner that builds on scientific evidence, strong management and organizational practice, and data use; conduct visits to individual sites operated by those programs to investigate and document the practices; and write a “lessons from the field” guide for practitioners that includes site descriptions and cross-site analyses of good and innovative practice that can help other 21st CCLC grantees and subgrantees implement similar programs.
