The Chickasaw City School’s 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) program site is an out-of-school time program offered through a federal grant administered by the Alabama Department of Education. The program offers academic support, academic enrichment, college and career readiness, and recreational opportunities for students, and it also serves students’ families. To get the full benefit of the program, your child should attend daily.
Your child and family are expected to meet program guidelines and participate regularly. Instructors use positive reinforcement during the out-of-school time program to keep a positive and fun learning environment. To maintain that positive environment, we will not allow harassment or bullying. We have a “zero tolerance” policy for any weapons or controlled substances. We follow the practices and procedures described in the schools’ handbook. Expectations during the out-of-school time program are the same as during the regular school day. Our behavior/discipline policy states that if a student has a discipline issue, the parent or guardian will be notified. If your child receives three of these notifications, he or she may be dismissed from the program. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate a student from the program immediately if a student’s behavior puts staff or other students in danger.
The program hours go from school dismissal until 5:45 p.m. Monday through Friday at the elementary school and until 4:45 p.m. Monday through Thursday at the middle and high schools. We will not be in session on non-school days.
