TEA created the Blueprint to provide guidance for all of the 21st Century Community Learning Center programs. The Blueprint offers a foundation of critical elements, grant requirements, and research-based practices, on which all stakeholders will focus. It also provides the context for communication, training, and quality assurance. It is organized around the four components of Program, Data, Fiscal, and Quality Assurance Requirements. There is also a fifth section covering Additional Support.
