Welcome to Parma Learning Center

Hello! I am the Director of the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Center. Where we are Serving, Teaching, Accepting, and Respecting our STAR-Children.  Parma Learning Center, PLC functions as a part of the Parma School District 137.  The Parma Learning Center After School Program is designed to serve students primarily needing academic and linguistic support and personally at-risk. However, we do offer enrichment to all interested students. PLC is a safe environment after school and provides enrichment through educational intervention support and a broad range of additional services, programs, and activities for its students and services to their parents/ families.  PLC operates because of a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant through the State of Idaho Department of Education, but federally funded.  This current grant runs through the school year 2018-2023.

Parma Learning Center is set-up as follows: grade levels 1-4 in the Maxine Johnson Elementary and grade levels 5-8 in the West Wing of Parma Middle School. 
Feel free to email,, or call 208-779-4069 x1606 this goes to my cell after hours.

Have a great year! 

Go Panthers!
