21st century and famee

The 21st Century Community Learning Center program awards competitive grants for expanded academic enrichment opportunities for children attending high poverty schools. Tutorial services and academic enrichment activities are designed to help students meet local and state academic standards in subjects such as reading and math. In addition, programs may provide youth development activities, drug and violence prevention programs, technology education programs, art, music and recreation, counseling and character education to enhance the academic component of the program.  Our particular program is called FAMEE for Farmington And Middleton Extending Education.  We currently have programs operating at the middle school and at the high school serving students in 4th-12th grade.

Inspiring Learning

Homework Help & Tutoring
Designated homework clubs, low ratios, and individual support from certified teachers help raise student achievement and engagement in the school day

Enrichment
Fun, engaging and hands on! Enrichment programming provides students with the opportunity to explore the arts and sciences, technology, drug and violence prevention and other popular topics while developing necessary social and academic skills to succeed both in and out of school.

Supporting Families

Adult & Family Programming
21st Century Programs provide literacy and other educational services to families.

Eliminating Financial Barriers

No student is ever turned away due to inability to pay!  Most programs offer sliding fee scales as well as scholarship programs to ensure that all students have access to their quality programming.

"Having our children in the after school program gave us our family time back.  Instead of spending hours working on-or arguing about-homework, we were able to take walks and eat meals together at the end of the day.  We also valued knowing that our children were safe while we were not able to be home." -parent interview conducted by National Community Education Association

Community Engagement

Community Partners
Schools partner with local community organizations including libraries, museums, churches, and youth organizations to develop rich programming and provide access to resources and experiences students might not otherwise engage in.

Service Learning
Meaningful and hands-on, students are provided with opportunities to learn while giving back and making a positive difference in their communities.
