Technology Centers That Work (TCTW) Implementation Grants Available
A competitive Invitation for Grant Applications (IGA) is currently open seeking to secure new grant recipients for the implementation of Technology Centers That Work (TCTW). Eligible applicants are public shared-time area career centers wishing to implement TCTW as a stand-alone school improvement model, or in partnership with a "feeder" public comprehensive high school which would begin implementation of High Schools That Work and/or public middle school which would implement Making Middle Grades Work.
The deadline for receipt of proposals to this IGA is 1:00 pm, Friday, May 16, 2014.
Full execution of any and all grant awards made as a result of the IGA process is contingent upon continued availability of funding.
