ADE: Title IV-B 21st CCLC Waiver - Public Comment (09/22/2020)
Given the hybrid approach some local educational agencies (LEAs) are considering in which students are in school part of the week and participating in remote learning during other times, we recognize that students may benefit from dedicated personnel and enhanced technological resources to help them better engage with remote lessons, independent work that is assigned, and other academic enrichment activities during the portion of the week when they are not physically present in school but school is in session remotely for some portion of the day, the U.S. Education Department (ED) is offering flexibility to States regarding the requirement in section 4201(b)(1)(A) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) that a 21st CCLC program operate “during nonschool hours or periods when school is not in session (such as before and after school or during summer recess).”
This flexibility will enable Arizona’s 21st CCLC Title IV-B subgrantees to provide supplemental activities when school is in session but students are not receiving in-person instruction, such as by permitting a teacher to provide additional academic supports during remote learning. All other requirements for a 21st CCLC program continue to apply.
The Arizona Department of Education does intend to apply for this waiver and is providing notice and opportunity for public comment. Comments may be submitted to [email protected]until 09/29/2020
