RUSD Awarded 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grants


Racine Unified School District was awarded 5-year grants from the Department of Public Instruction for 21st Century Community Learning Centers for Dr. Jones Elementary, Roosevelt Elementary, Julian Thomas Elementary and Mitchell Middle School. Knapp Elementary also received a grant that was awarded to United Way of Racine County.   

The purpose of the grants is to create community learning centers that provide students with academic enrichment opportunities, as well as additional activities designed to complement their regular academic program.

Community learning centers must also offer families of these students literacy and related educational development. Centers provide a range of high-quality services to support student learning and development, including tutoring and mentoring, homework help, academic enrichment (such as hands-on science or technology programs), community service opportunities, as well as music, arts, sports, and cultural activities.

Congratulation to all who were involved!
