The Geneva City School District has been awarded a $5.8 million dollar 21st Century Learning Center Grant. The New York State Education Department announced last week that, starting in the 2017-18 school year, the district will receive $1.17 million per year for five years. The federally-funded grant supports the creation of community learning centers that operate programs for students.
This is the fourth time the Geneva City School District has received this grant, which covers a wide variety of before- and after school programming, including secondary summer school, Morning Program clubs, Boys and Girls Club programming, Finger Lakes Community College GED and English Second Language classes for families, Big Brothers Big Sisters mentorships, and collaboration with Cornell Cooperative Extension and Hobart and William Smith Colleges. The school district received a total of $7.3 million from three 21st Century Learning Center grants between 2006 and 2016.
