School’s 21st Century Learning Center morphs into Project CONNECT

A few years ago the federal government awarded Plattsburgh City School a grant intended to make a difference in the lives of students and their families. The result of that grant, the 21st Century Community Learning Center, provides academic enrichment opportunities for children during non-school hours. It was designed to help students meet state and local standards in core academic subjects. The federal money runs out this June, but the program will continue through a new partnership with Plattsburgh State.
