Maine’s 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program

Student learning doesn't stop after the final bell. Educators and policy makers have begun to show increasing interest in programs designed for non-school hours, especially those designated for after school. A lot of emphasis has been placed on after-school programs for three primary reasons. First, attendance in after-school programs can provide children with supervision during a time when many might be exposed to or engaged in more antisocial and destructive behaviors. Second, after-school programs can provide enriching experiences that broaden children's perspective and improve their socialization. Third, and a more recent emphasis, after-school programs can perhaps help improve the academic achievement of students who are not accomplishing as much as they need to during regular school hours.
