District Collaboration Grants


The School District Collaboration Grant Program was established by the 2011 State Legislature to provide funding for school districts to improve student achievement through the voluntary collaboration of teachers and administrators to implement new approaches to: 

  • Career pathways for teachers and administrators; 
  • Evaluation processes for teachers and administrators; 
  • Compensation models for teachers and administrators; and 
  • Enhanced professional development opportunities for teachers and administrators.

Information on the districts selected to participate in the grant cycle based on their readiness to implement the four required elements listed above, through a competitive application process. District applications had to include approval of local administrators, bargaining representative, and school board chair.

  • Letter of Intent - This notice of intent is optional but will help the Oregon Department of Education identify the number of grant reviewers needed and assure that potential applicants will receive all updates related to the grant process. Completing this notice does not obligate the district to submit a final grant. Information provided in this notice will not be used in the final review of grant applications. Please submit the letter of intent by June 30, 2017.
  • Design Grant Application - The application will be posted when the Legislative session has ended. This is a legislative-funded program; project timeline, reporting dates, and requirements are contingent upon the Oregon Department of Education receiving funding for 2017-2019 biennium from the Oregon Legislature and are subject to change as state requirements change.
