Parkside applies for Community Learning Center Grant for program

The Parkside Middle School A+ After School Program applied for a five-year 21st Century Community Learning Center continuation grant through the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction at the end of January.

This grant has provided almost all the funding required to support the 4-8th grade A+ program at Parkside for the past five years with an average of 165 students participating each year. 

The maximum amount available for the next five-year grant cycle is $275,000 compared to $500,000 that was awarded previously.
