The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) notifies the community of its intent to apply to the California Department of Education for funding for two programs that support academic enrichment during non-school hours: the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Elementary and Middle School Program, and the 21st Century After School Safety and Enrichment for Teens program (ASSETs).
