Previously Reported Note on After School Programming:  CCC have not met their goal of enrolling student for the after-school arts education program even though there is growing interest from local families.  One of the top barriers to program enrollment is the transport of students from school to the Arts Garage facility.

 

While Summer Camp metrics will also be reported out in the CCC’s 4th Quarter Report, it is noted they were able to offer 19 full scholarships and one-half scholarship during the first 4-week Summer Camp session.
