Distinctive Schools is in the process of applying for a 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant from the Illinois State Board of Education. This announcement serves as official public notice of this application process. Our application will be in partnership with Chicago Public Schools and in support of service to the following school sites: CICS Bucktown, CICS Irving Park, CICS Prairie, CICS West Belden, and Art In Motion.

Through our grant project, we will be able to provide students at the above named school sites with academic and enrichment after-school opportunities on a year-round basis. We will also be able to serve participating students’ family members with an array of support services.
