Abstract:
The Freehold Borough Public Schools 21st CCLC Program enables us to increase students’ academic achievements and social experiences by incorporating high-quality supplemental services in academic areas such as literacy and mathematics and enrichment activities in areas such as technology, music, art, cultural, recreation, drama, health and nutrition, and character education. Our students have a seamless transition from the school day to our program and, in fact, simply consider it the second part of the school day. The program strengthens and builds upon the partnership and collaborative relationships within the Freehold Borough community by giving the participating students and families access to all available resources through a coordinated service program. Through this program, we are able to meet the needs of our parents and families by offering workshops such as “ESL for Adults” and “Technology for Parents.” To help bridge the language gap in our community, we also offer adult Spanish classes for our English speaking parents.
