About Expanded Learning
District 63's Expanded Learning Programs grew out of its long-standing Total Learning Community (TLC) -- a vital and integral part of the entire community since its inception in June 2001. TLC began when the District was awarded three years of federal funding based on demonstrated needs in the community for high quality, safe after school and community education programs.
With a name change in 2016 to "Expanded Learning," the program has expanded our involvement throughout the school district to serve all of our youth and families. The new name better describes the wide variety of opportunities offered to the community -- from basketball leagues and our Summer Fun & Learning Program to Spring Fling and our core service, the afterschool program.
