The Collaborative for Educational Services (CES) 21st Century After School program has received three year grant funding to open an out-of-school time (OST) program at Easthampton High School. The program will begin in the fall, and will focus on academic support as well as Service Learning and Project Based Learning for the students. Planning work will be done by CES with extensive input from Easthampton High School’s administration, for both the After School program, as well as the summer component, which will begin in the summer of 2017.
Additional details about registering for the program at Easthampton High School will be provided closer to September.
The 21st Century Learning Centers reflect current research showing that afterschool programs are most effective when they engage students in Service Learning and long term projects, integrate relevant academic learning, address the different needs of individual students, capitalize on our students’ interests and strengths, offer a variety of meaningful activities, and provide opportunities for caring adults to guide students’ choices.
