It is the intent of the Legislature that the 21st Century Community Learning Centers program contained within the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (Public Law 107-110) complement the After School Education and Safety Program established by Article 22.5 (commencing with Section 8482) to provide year-round opportunities for expanded learning, as defined in Section 8482.1, and to support the local flexibility needed to implement federal 21st Century Community Learning Centers programs through after school grants as specified in this article.
