Welcome to Tarrant City Schools After School Programs Info
Tarrant City Schools Offers Two After School Learning Programs:
21st Century Community Learning Center (K-6th)
Supplemental Educational Services (10th-12th)
21st Century Community Learning Center
Tarrant City Schools operates a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant at Tarrant Elementary School that provides extended day programming for kindergarten through sixth grades. The grant is for $125,000 per year for 3 years (based on federal funding). Funding for this project began on October 1, 2011.
The 21st Century CLC grant allows the site to lower student participation fees while offering high-quality academic and enrichment services, low student to teacher ratios, and valuable opportunities for parental involvement. The Tarrant 21st Century program has partnered with Sylvan Learning Centers to provide scientifically-research based academic instruction that is specific to each student's individual need. Students will work with a Sylvan tutor in small groups twice per week, and will be offered 60 total hours of tutoring in reading and/or math by the end of the school year. Qualified high school student workers, college students, and adult group leaders work with students daily to assist with homework completion, supervise free play, and facilitate games and enrichment activities. Students participate in service-learning sessions twice per month, and will plan and execute service-learning projects throughout the year.
Services are available Monday through Friday on the campus of Tarrant Elementary School from 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.

Supplemental Educational Services (SES)
Supplemental Educational Services (Free Tutoring) is offered at Tarrant High School, serving tenth through twelfth grade students. Because Tarrant High School has failed to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for three years and is in School Improvement (Year 3), it is required that the system offer Tarrant High School students Supplemental Educational Services (SES).
All Tarrant High School (10th-12th grade) students are eligible to participate in SES. The school system contracts with state-approved companies to provide this tutoring. Tutoring is provided at NO COST to students, and parents have the option to choose the company they would like to work with their child(ren). SES is like a "gift card" for tutoring. Each enrolled student may receive up to $1,001 worth of tutoring during the 2012-2013 school year. SES tutoring must focus on reading and/or math with the goal of helping students be successful on the Alabama High School Graduation Exam. Tutoring locations and times depend on the company selected. The following options are available: on-campus after school, in-home or at a community center, or in the company's office location.
