AIKEN COUNTY, S.C.- WJBF News Channel 6 has learned that an education program in several South Carolina counties is on hold.
The 21st Century Community Learning Centers in Allendale, Bamberg and Barnwell is not operating.
The primary goal of the 21st CCLC Program is to supplement the education of children who attend low-performing schools and live in high-poverty areas with academic, artistic and cultural enrichment during out-of-school time hours, so that they may attain the skills necessary to meet state core curriculum content standards.
We’re expecting to get more information on why the program is on hold.
Tune in at 5 and 6 p.m. as we dig deeper into this story.
