PRIEST RIVER — Though it’s probably too late to get started this school year, home schoolers and private schoolers should consider taking part in the free courses offered at the 21st Century Community Learning Center at Priest River Lamanna High School. The 21st Century Community Learning Centers program offers academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours, said program director Cherie Coldwell. The CCLC at PRLHS currently offers art, self-defense, robotics, American Sign Language, college prep, fly tying, home repair, and other classes in addition to labs covering English, science, and math.

A law known as the Elementary and Secondary Education Act “provides for the equitable participation of private school students, teachers and other educational personnel in some of its major programs,” said Coldwell. There is no charge to students or parents whether they’re homeschoolers, private school students, or public school students. Coldwell said, “The program also offers families of students served by community learning centers opportunities for educational development. Federal money to states for this program is determined by population.”

Bus transportation to Priest Lake, Oldtown, and Blanchard is available to drop off students after CCLC sessions. Students may attend Monday-Thursday before school from 6:50-7:50 a.m. for morning homework, and 2:45-5:00 p.m. for after school offerings. Students can pick and choose which days or sessions to attend.

Coldwell added, “My hope is that parents of private schooled and home schooled students will take advantage of the program when we resume in the fall.”
