2200 Dodge Street | Lincoln, NE 68521 | A service of Civic Nebraska and Lincoln Public Schools

Campbell Elementary is one of 29 Nebraska 21st Century Community Learning Centers in Lincoln Public Schools. As a CLC school, Campbell is able to offer a variety of expanded learning opportunities and community-focused programming through their collaborative partnership with the nonprofit organization Civic Nebraska. The goal is to use the local school as a hub for services and community organization.

As an entire school building Campbell Elementary is a Community Learning Center (CLC). Extended CLC is the portion of our program that guarantees students a spot between 7am-6pm, Monday-Friday, as a safe and enriched space for students to spend the out of school hours. Extended CLC is a low-cost, state-licensed option for families needing the extra hours for drop off and pick up. Students part of Extended CLC participate in rotations before school (gym, computer lab, makerspace, etc.) and are encouraged to choose club opportunities that fit their interests during the after-school hours. As participants in this paid-programming Extended CLC students can attend on PLC Days and certain Non-School Days. Extended CLC costs a flat rate of $55/week/student with options to apply for a CivicNE scholarship or use state subsidy funds. To enroll your student in the Extended CLC program at Campbell Elementary please fill out the paperwork below.

Getting Ahead:
In partnership with the Food Bank of Lincoln and Collective Impact Lincoln, the Campbell CLC offers a parent education course called Getting Ahead in a Just Getting By World. This 10-module course allows parents to focus on personal goal-setting and community assessment. Childcare, dinner, and a stipend are provided as a way for the adult participating to come full engaged and in a mental space to learn, reflect, and create a future story.

For more information about Getting Ahead please contact Ms. Emily at emily.koopmann@lps.org.

Family Literacy:
Family Literacy is a partner program operated and hosted by Lincoln Public Schools. Family Literacy allows for English-language-learning parents to meet daily and acclimate to life in the United States. Two sections of this course are offered ever day at Campbell (a morning and afternoon session) and childcare is provided. Parents in Family Literacy also participate in PACT time (Parent And Child Together time), where they come alongside their student’s learning in the Campbell classroom.

For questions about Family Literacy please contact Ms. Leesa Kraeger at lkraege@lps.org

It is the goal of the Campbell Community Learning Center to engage community partners within the school neighborhood – parents, religious organizations, community agencies, business owners, students, and so on. We aim to do this through a sustaining SNAC (School Neighborhood Advisory Committee) group. This group is focused on providing a space and a means to keep the Campbell school community thriving through conversations and collaborative efforts.

Campbell SNAC meetings will coordinate with PTO. Child care and pizza are provided. Twice a year, a collaborative larger body called the North Central Lincoln Community Council will meet and this will include the CLC/SNAC groups at Belmont Elementary, Goodrich Middle School, and North Star High School.

Emily Koopmann, Campbell School Community Coordinator, is the contact for the Campbell PTO and School Neighborhood Advisory Committee.
