The Choir School of Delaware is proud to announce that we are partnering with the Brandywine School District on an application for the 21st Century Community Learning Center Cohort 21. If approved, the Choir School and the Brandywine School District will receive federal funding to create a 21st Century Community Learning Center in Wilmington for BSD students.
21st Century Community Learning Centers provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local academic standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.
To learn more about 21st Century Community Learning Centers, please visit the Department of Education website. The Choir School’s completed subgrant application will be publicly available here once submitted. The Department of Education is expected to release application decisions in July 2023.
We are glad to partner with the Brandywine School District on this application with the goal of connecting more Wilmington students to out-of-school-time music and mentoring. Together, we will help students succeed in school and beyond.
