After School Programming

Newton County School System was awarded a 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant to expand the ASAP, targeting children identified as needing after‐school services and remediation, but whose families cannot afford the tuition‐based program already in place. The 21st Century CLC provides federal funds to establish or expand community learning centers that operate during out-of-school hours and that have three specific purposes:

  • To provide opportunities for academic enrichment and tutorial services
  • To offer students a broad array of additional services, programs, and activities to reinforce and complement the regular academic program; and
  • To offer families of 21st CCLC students opportunities for literacy and related educational development

Funding from the program has allowed the district to serve 850 additional students tuition-free in the ASAP in 12 locations: Fairview, Flint Hill, Heard Mixon and West Newton elementary schools; Clements, Cousins, Indian Creek, Liberty, and Veterans Memorial middle schools; Alcovy, and Eastside high schools, and the Washington Street Community Center.
