Eligibility
Criteria
The essential partnership is between an eligible local educational agency (LEA) and eligible departments of institutions of higher education (IHE). County offices of education, individual schools, additional LEAs, IHEs, or other organizations interested in mathematics and science professional development may also participate in the partnership. Only LEAs who meet the 40 percent free and reduced lunch criteria may apply as a lead partner.
Other
Eligibility
Considerations
The lead partner must be a "high-need LEA." The lead partner submits the application and accepts management and fiduciary responsibility for the partnership. The term "high-need LEA" refers to one that serves a student population where at least 40 percent of the students qualify for the National School Lunch Program. Eligible departments of IHEs are mathematics, science, engineering, or technology. Math or science must be one of the disciplines.
