June 2, 2021

Charleston County School District’s (CCSD) Office of Expanded Learning (Kaleidoscope) has received a $150,000 grant from to provide free online enrichment classes for hundreds of students in the district.

Outschool’s interactive online classes provide schools and youth programs with easy and flexible enrichment that kids are passionate about and likely couldn’t otherwise access. There are thousands of courses to choose from, including STEM (e.g., Python coding, intro to architecture), arts (e.g., singing lessons with music from Hamilton, drawing anime characters), sports (e.g., karate, ballet), academics (e.g., African American history; multiplication facts; paragraph writing; rocks, fossils, crystals).

The Office of Expanded Learning is currently piloting this program in five after school programs at Title I schools and will expand next school year.
