Improving Teacher Quality State Grants
To receive a high-quality education, a student must have a capable teacher. That's why the federal government created the Improving Teacher Quality State Grants. Ensuring that all teachers are highly qualified to teach increases the academic achievement of students and school districts.
Each year, the Coordinating Commission awards Improving Teacher Quality State Grants to Nebraska's innovative leaders in education. Grants are not awarded to individuals, but to partnerships formed by local, high-need educational agencies and a Nebraska college or university. These partnerships design and produce professional development activities to improve the skills of teachers, paraprofessionals, and principals.
The deadline has passed for submitting an ITQ proposal for 2014-15. The Coordinating Commission will be choosing 20014-15 grant recipients in January 2015.
