Annual Performance Report

Per federal requirements, all funded Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Leaning Centers (21st CCLC) grantees are required to report Annual Performance Report (APR) data. To accomplish this, Wisconsin 21st CCLCs are required to use Cayen’s AS21 System to enter and certify APR data.

Access to Forms and Technical Assistance

DPI has developed the following FAQ in an effort to provide Wisconsin grantees with guidance related to entering APR data into Cayen’s AS21 system. In addition to this FAQ, grantees may find it useful to refer to the 21APR Data Guide, a document published by the federal Department of Education for users of the 21APR system. The 21APR Data Guide provides an overview of the types of data grantees are required to enter, as well as helpful definitions.

Grantees may administer teacher surveys via the Cayen system or they may choose to use the PDF version of the teacher survey.

On May 6, 2020, DPI hosted a webinar on the Annual Performance Report (APR) process. The PowerPoint slides are available here. For a copy of the recording, please contact Tanya Morin (, 608-267-9393)
