Students residing in Bristol Borough attending public, parochial or private schools are eligible to participate in 21st Century Community Learning Center (21stCCLC) after school and summer camp programs provided by Bristol Borough School District (BBSD).  BBSD and its fiscal agent, Ivins House, approve all programs designed to improve academic achievement, meet new friends, prepare for college or vocational/trade training, express their creativity, learn teamwork and respect, build self-confidence, play sports, develop real-world skills and help working families. 

The Academic Oversight Committee (AOC) allows for innovative programs designed by teachers to enhance classroom curricula that are ineligible for 21stCCLC funding as well as incidentals such as snacks, admission fees, and transportation costs.

Additional AOC funding makes available discretionary programs benefiting Borough students in special ways, e.g., Writer’s Voice Workshop, Microsoft Certification, and All Our Children.

Finally, the AOC recognizes annually an outstanding community leader(s) -dubbed Person(s) of the Year- with ties to Borough education, four teachers and a Borough student of the year.
