21st Century Community Learning Centers

Home About Student Support 21st Century Community Learning Centers

All four Carrollton City schools offer unique after-school enrichment/remediation programs that specifically target academically at-risk students.

The seed money and much of current operating costs of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers are funded by a U.S. Department of Education initiative that supports the centers, which operate during out-of-school hours and that have three specific purposes: To provide opportunities for academic enrichment and tutorial services; to offer students a broad array of additional services, programs and activities to reinforce and complement the regular academic program; and to offer families of 21st CCLC students opportunities for literacy and related educational development.

Carrollton Elementary School’s after-school/summer program is called PALS, an acronym for Positive Academic Learning Stars. This program provides extended day/year services to at-risk second and third grade students who did not meet the state standards or grade-level benchmarks.

PALS’s site coordinators are Cynthia Lucas and Cindy Bagwell. Call the CES main number to phone them: 770-832-2120.
