21st Century Community Learning Center

"Belle Brainiacs" After School Program

Welcome to the Belle Brainiacs Program.  My name is Gracey Damron and I am the 21st Century Community Learning Center Coodinator for Belle School. The 21st Century Community Learning Center is a federally funded program brought to you through a partnership bewteen Kewanee School District and the Regional Office of Education.  This program provides academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement the school day academic programs, and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children
