Grants to USA public school districts to enhance the quality of education at schools serving students from military families. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for programs that address academic mastery, narrowing learning gaps for students that transition, and providing consistent access to educational programs. Although funding is contingent upon military-connected student enrollment, it is expected that the proposed projects may serve all students at the target schools.
The objective of the FY 20 grant program is to provide resources that promote student achievement in the core curricular areas: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM); literacy; to promote virtual learning programs that increase educational program cohesiveness (including accelerated learning, credit recovery and unique student course selections [e.g. world languages]); and to resource multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) learning environments so that transitioning military-connected students are afforded the opportunity to increase educational continuity and address core content gaps due to relocations.
Program Priorities: Beginning in Pre-K and continuing through grade 12, STEAM engagement prepares students with the knowledge, skills, dispositions and learning application opportunities necessary for successful postsecondary engagement. STEAM student-centered goals will focus on achievement results that decrease student knowledge and mastery gaps as a result of frequent and/or mid-year transitions and increase student mastery. LEAs who apply for an FY 2020 DoDEA grant, must choose one of the following objectives as a project focus:
