Abstract/Description:
The objective of the study was to research the impact 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) has on Title 1 middle school students in Seminole County. A mixed methods design was used to interview and survey teachers working for the after-school program, and student data was collected to assist in identifying the impact of the program. Initially, interviews were conducted to research the implementation of the program. Following interviews, willing participants completed the survey sent out to all middle school teachers who work for 21st CCLC. The survey investigated how the vision of the program was presented to staff and students. Data was then collected from middle school students attending the program from 2015 to 2017. The data collected was used to research whether there was a correlation between students' attending the after-school program and their Florida State Assessment (FSA) scores as well as their grade point average (GPA) in school. Qualitative data was collected and coded from teachers. There was a variance between each site on the implementation and vision of the after-school program as stated by the grant. Student data displayed that there was no correlation between students' attending the program and FSA scores. There was a correlation between students' GPA and their attendance at the after-school tutoring program. Further investigation is necessary to research larger sample sizes outside of Seminole County.
