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.
