The School District of Indian River County was awarded the 21st CCLC grant in December 2009 for two district schools; Pelican Island Elementary and Thompson Magnet. When Thompson Magnet was closed in 2010 the grant was transferred to Glendale Elementary with the majority of the Thompson Magnet students.

In 2015 the School District of Indian River County was awarded a 21st CCLC grant for Sebastian Elementary and Treasure Coast Elementary Schools. In 2016, Pelican Island Elementary was awarded a 21st CCLC grant. The 21st CCLC grant provides a FREE program for students enrolled at Pelican Island Elementary School (1355 Schumann Drive, Sebastian); Sebastian Elementary School (400 County Road #512, Sebastian); and Treasure Coast Elementary School (8955 85th Street, Sebastian). Transportation by district school buses is available at some sites for students living in the school’s transportation zone. Please check with your 21st CCLC School Coordinator to see if transportation is offered at your school.

Through a collaborative effort between the 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC), the School District of Indian River County, and other community partners; Pelican Island Elementary, Sebastian Elementary, and Treasure Coast Elementary Schools will provide after-school academically focused classes.

Each site operates on the full-day student calendar schedule approved by the School District of Indian River County each school year. No programs are held on days of early release for students or holidays. A 21st CCLC staff member is available at each site during the evening conference times.
