Evanston/Skokie School District 65 has received nearly $250,000 to run after-school programs at two elementary schools.

The district, in collaboration with Youth Organizations Umbrella, will provide after-school programs for students at Oakton and Washington schools with a $248,134 grant from the federal 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program.

The grant will be used beginning this fall to provide students with homework help, academic and cultural enrichment, and recreation and youth development activities.

The district may be eligible to receive about $380,000 more from the program over the following four years, depending upon federal funding levels.

In the past five years the district has received over $2.3 million in funds from the program for work at Kingsley, Oakton, Washington and Chute Schools.
