TCMS receives $300K grant for after-school programming

From Suzanne Grubesic

Campbellsville, KY - - Taylor County School Middle School has been awarded a $300,000 grant award from the Kentucky Department of Education to begin providing students daily after school programming and enrichment. The 21st Century Community Learing Center Grant has been serving afterschool programming for 25 years, prioritizing funding to students in high-need, high-poverty communities who would benefit from additional academic enrichment and youth development activities.

With this grant, TCMS principal Neil Sanders anticipates more students will have access to resources that help them achieve state standards in core academic subjects such as reading and math. The program will also offer students a broad array of enrichment activities that will complement their regular academic programs.

Additionally, with established community partnerships, the program will offer beneficial programming enrichment for the parents of program participants.

Taylor County Middle School was one of 33 schools in the state to receive this grant award from the Kentucky Department of education. The grant will provide $300,000 to fund afterschool programming over the next three years. TCMS has not received funding for this program since 2013.
