The C.O.A.S.T. program, or Creating Opportunities for After School Thinking, is federally funded by the Department of Education 21st Century Community Learning Center. Cape Flattery School District is one of 11 schools nation-wide to receive grant money used to tutor students in core subjects -- using music, art and culture -- helping them meet state and local academic achievement standards. Partners in the program include Makah Cultural and Research Center, Makah Employment and Training Department, and the North Olympic Library System, which oversees the public libraries in Clallam Bay, Forks, Port Angeles and Sequim. After the initial five-year grant period, the school district will look for ways to sustain the program.
