Lincoln Pubic Schools add three community learning centers

Three new community centers have opened for students with Lincoln Public Schools.

It coincides with the beginning of the school year.

The CLC’s have opened at Randolph Elementary School, Northeast High School and Lincoln High School.

The new CLC’s are funded through a nearly $183,000 federal grant.

The $182,700 federal grant approved by the Nebraska Board of Education last spring, was part of an award for $2.2 million in funding distributed statewide through the federal 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant.

The city’s CLC’s are located in schools throughout the city, and now the total stands at 29.

Combined, the CLCs offer more than 500 clubs, many of which are intended to expose students to potential careers.

These centers are designed to offer safe and supervised–before-and-after school programs.
