SCHEV RFP for Implement PD Programs

SCHEV’s Request for Proposal (RFP) for its 2015-2016 Improving Teacher Quality State (ITQ) Grant competition. This is an opportunity for  faculty in your School of Arts and Sciences to collaborate with your School of Education and partner with high-need local school divisions to design and implement PD programs that will improve student achievement.  This year’s competition will give considerable priority to professional development proposals that focus on middle school Mathematics, Science, English and other core academic areas that increase academic achievement and align with state educational initiatives.  While applicants can submit proposals for any content area, we strongly recommend the submission of proposals for professional development activities that:

  •  Promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) instruction, or
  • Advance one of three priorities identified by the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE):
    • improvement of K-5 content area nonfiction reading and writing
    • enhancement of college and career readiness skills in argumentation, persuasive writing and research
    • implementation of research-based strategies that support  instruction for English language learners
