Murphy Elementary School District #21 will submit a new 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) application for the Cycle 15 Fiscal Year 2020 for W.R. Sullivan and Arthur M. Hamilton Schools. If approved the grant would be for a period of 5 years with a projected budget of $120,000 for Year 1, 2, & 3. The purpose of the grant is to (1) provide opportunities for academic enrichment, including providing tutorial services to help students, particularly students who attend low-performing schools, to meet the challenging State academic standards; (2) Offer youth development activities by providing enrichment opportunities (technology education, science, service learning, character education, etc. and to (3) offer families of students served by the program opportunities for active and meaningful engagement in their children's' education, including opportunities for literacy and related education development.

Our textbook committee has been very busy the last few months narrowing down the choices of publishers for both ELA (K-8) and Math (K-8) for a possible textbook adoption for the 2019-2020 school year. The Governing Board/Receiver will display the textbooks that are considered for adoption in the Boardroom 60 days prior to the finalized adoption. We currently have 2 ELA and 2 Math programs ready for you to review and to provide input, if you'd like.
To provide input, please email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org from now until March 29, 2019. The boardroom will be open Monday-Friday from 8am-4pm to view the materials.
