Kingdom Afterschool programs opened at Burke Town School, Lyndon Town School, Miller's Run School, Newark Street School and Sutton Village School on Sept. 9.
Effective July 1, 2013, Caledonia North Supervisory Union was awarded a new five-year 21st Century Community Learning Center grant by the Vermont Agency of Education to continue to support Kingdom Afterschool Programs. The grant funds provide 50 percent of program costs. Programs also receive funding through local school budgets, SU Title I funds and parent fees. Programs are open to all CNSU K-8th grade students and offer hands-on, project based learning activities focused on skill development in a safe, supportive environment. The daily schedule includes a healthy snack, help with homework, and clubs and activities led by school day teachers and instructors from community partners.
