Overton County schools will be applying for a Twenty-First Century Learning Center federal grant to fund and continue the Extended Learning day programs at LMS and Livingston Academy. These programs have been ongoing at LMS since 2010 and began at LA in the fall of 2016. The grant process has started and must be concluded by March 31st.
The Twenty-First Century Learning Centers program provides federal funding to establish or expand community learning centers. These centers provide students with opportunities for academic enrichment, youth development and family support during hours when school is not in session. Even though activities are outside of the regular curriculum, the goal of the program is to improve student performance on report cards and state testing.
Overton County has an excellent school system that strives to meet the individual needs of all students. Local, state, and national goals are a major focus of the day-to-day operation of the system. The mission of the Overton County Board of Education, Director, administrators and teachers, in a partnership with the lay citizens of Overton County, is to produce young men and women who will leave our system with the ability to think clearly, use good judgement in all areas of life, be competent in basic skills, be prepared to learn throughout the rest of their lives, and who possess the ability to do well in whatever endeavor they may choose.
