VT 21st CCLC Evaluation

Vermont Afterschool has been reporting on evaluation data for Vermont’s 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21C) since 2010. The Vermont Agency of Education conducts regular grant competitions to fund expanded learning opportunities during both the school year and summer as 21C programs. In the past decade more than 100 new sites have been generated as a result of this initiative. It seeks to enhance students’ academic achievement and to foster lifelong interests in the arts, recreation and other areas through high-quality expanded learning opportunities.

Highlights from the evaluation of the 2016-17 school year:

  • 29 projects consisted of 102 individual program sites.
  • 34% of Vermont’s public schools had 21C programming.
  • Approximately 16% of Vermont’s students were served by 21C programming.
  • 12,971 students attended programs, 5,872 of whom attended on a regular basis (at least 30 days during the year).
  • 3,661 students from low income families attended on a regular basis.
  • On average, school year sites were open for 33 weeks during the school year at a rate of 4.7 days per week (11 hours per week).
  • On average, summer sites were open for 5.1 weeks during the summer at a rate of 4.9 days per week (31 hours per week).
  • 81% of sites provided strategies beyond homework help to help students struggling academically.
  • 97% of sites provided opportunities for at least 20 minutes of physical activity for every 2 hours of programming offered.
