The Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) recruits qualified grant readers to serve on a Peer Review team for the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) competitive grant applications.


The 21st CCLC program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours.

Designed as a supplementary program to enhance state or local reform efforts, this program assists students in meeting academic standards in core subjects (math, reading, science, social studies) by providing expanded learning opportunities to students and their families.

The Program:

  • Targets high-poverty, low-performing schools;
  • Implements highly effective research-based programs to address academic needs; and
  • Provides academic assistance along with enrichment opportunities to help prepare students graduate to be college, career, and citizen ready.

Qualified peer reviewer applicants will possess one or more of the following:

  • Knowledge of the impact that expanded learning opportunities have on improving the academic achievement of students
  • Experience in an education-related field
  • Experience working with a variety of community members to forge meaningful partnerships that foster a commitment to improving the lives of our youth and their families
  • Previous experience/expertise as a grant reader and/or grant recipient

Reviewers will be required to:

  • Read and score their assigned applications through a web-based system. Access to a computer with internet access will be required.
  • Participate in a training webinar.
  • Review approximately 5 – 7 grant applications.
  • Complete a scoring rubric with comprehensive comments for each grant application reviewed.
  • Submit final scores and comments by the deadline.
