Heyburn Elementary is collecting input from parents in regards to the need and interest in participation in an after school program. The program would be provided for by the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant. The Idaho State Department of Education is the responsible State educational agency for 21st Century Community Learning Centers, which is authorized under Title IV, Part B, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015. (https://www.sde.idaho.gov/student-engagement/cclc/)
The program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children. The program helps students meet challenging state academic standards and local academic standards.
We first have to determine if we would have enough interest to support the program before completing and submitting the grant application. The survey is open to any parents of students enrolled at Heyburn Elementary, and also any Home Schooled students within our District.
Please complete the following survey by Dec. 6th.

A paper copy is also available this week at the St. Maries Public Library or the Heyburn Elementary Office.
We are excited about the possibilities this grant could offer and interested in all the input we can gather to help us in procuring the necessary funds!
