Greetings 21st Century Program Managers and Staff:
We would like to thank you all for your dedication to serving Ohio students in our after-school programs. The Department is in receipt of all your inquiries during Ohio’s ordered school building closures. During this period of school building closures, all 21st CCLC programs are required to shut down to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
We are anticipating detailed guidance internally (ODE) and externally (USDOE) to assist in responding to your inquiries. At this juncture, our office cannot provide guidance regarding the use of funds for payment of staff. We also cannot advise on if remote program activities are allowable in terms of sustaining program activity during this time.
All planning and programming should be placed on hold until further guidance has been provided. We will keep you all informed as we learn more. Please continue to reach out and let us know how we can assist you.
