CGPS State and Local Project Grants
Center for Great Public Schools Welcomes Proposals
Deadline: Tuesday, January 08, 2013
The Center for Great Public Schools (CGPS) welcomes proposals from state and local affiliates for initiatives that will support student learning, the quality of schools, the education professions, and the NEA’s effort to make access to a Great Public School the basic right of every child. CGPS will award grants in three areas:
- Leveraging Leadership in Education Reform: These grants are designed to foster comprehensive school reform by developing programs and resources that support local affiliate leaders in their roles as education change agents.
- Leading the Education Professions: The focus of these grants is on funding initiatives and partnerships that will enhance the education professions and student learning while putting educators and unions at the forefront of the promotion and protection of quality educational practices and quality educators.
- Actionable Research, Policy, and Practice for Great Public Schools: These grants will fund state- and local-level efforts to shape or strengthen the critical factors necessary to achieve great public schools and empower all of our members to lead their profession. Successful proposals will align with the GPS Indicators Framework and will yield actionable lessons from which all affiliates can benefit.
