Virtual Trainings and AssessmentsAll Applicants and Co-Applicants who are applying for this Request For Application must complete a series of six training videos and assessments to ensure a solid understanding of the grant requirements.
Non-compliance of each Applicant and Co-Applicant listed on the grant application to take the trainings and pass the assessments with a score no less than 80 percent will result in the application being disqualified from the process. If the Applicant does not pass with a score of 80 percent or higher, they may retake the training and quiz on, or before, November 16, 2022.
The trainings and quizzes can be accessed here:
- Quality Standards training and quiz
- Grants 101 training and quiz
- Grant Modifications training and quiz
- Federal Program Monitoring training and quiz
- Direct Service to Pupils training and quiz
- Continuous Quality Improvement training and quiz
It is the Applicant's responsibility to ensure that all Co-Applicants listed on the original grant application are notified and adhere to these requirements as not all contact information is entered into the After School Support and Information System (ASSIST) database. If a Co-Applicant is listed on multiple applications or an Applicant is listed on multiple applications, they only have to take the training series once. The California Department of Education (CDE) will review the grant applications to ensure that Applicants and Co-Applicants have taken and passed each of the six assessments with a score of no less than 80 percent. Proof of passing scores do not need to be submitted with this Request For Application, however, the CDE recommends keeping a copy of the passing scores for the records of all those applying.
Six virtual trainings and assessments must be completed and passed with a score of no less than 80 percent by every Applicant and Co-Applicant listed on the grant application by Wednesday, November 16, 2022.
