How many grants can my district submit?
  • As many as you want, however, the district must
    have the capacity to implement the grants awarded
  • Each proposal must be submitted as a separate RFP
    on the correct form

Program Purpose
  • Increase the ability for middle and high school
    teachers to provide instruction for English
    language learners in the core academic areas,
    specifically mathematics and science
  • Increase the number of highly-qualified middle
    and secondary level teachers of English language

Program Purpose
  • Create SIOP coaching/learning communities
    designed to develop ESL, math and science
    teacher-leaders who inquire into their own and
    each others teaching practices in an effort to
    improve student achievement and English language
  • Improve student academic achievement in
    mathematics, science and ESL and,
  • Increase the number of ELL students who graduate
    from high school and continue on to
    post-secondary education.

Program Description
  • Improve and upgrade the status and stature of
    English language acquisition by encouraging
    institutions of higher education to assume
    greater responsibility for improving ESL teacher
    education through the establishment of a
    comprehensive, integrated system of recruiting,
    training, and advising potential ESL teachers
  • Build capacity by creating high school
    teacher-leaders that are both excited and well
    equipped to provide professional development to
    fellow ESL teachers at the local and regional

Program Funding
  • 500,000 per grant per year for a total of 3
    years, assuming continued funding and
    satisfactory progress is made
  • At least one proposal will be awarded in each of
    three categories
  • K-5 Science
  • 6-12 Mathematics
  • 6-12 SIOP
  • We anticipate that a total of 7 grants may be
  • Applications must be of high quality to be

  • Must Include
  • A high-need local educational agency,

    education, the ESOL teacher training department

  • May also include ( highly encouraged)
  • Other engineering, mathematics, or science
  • Additional local educational agencies
  • RPDC

  • Non-profit or For-profit that has demonstrated
    effectiveness in improving math and science

DESE Collaborations
  • Work regularly with DESE/MELL staff to coordinate
    activities with grade-level expectations, state
    assessments, and model curriculum
  • Present findings at state conferences
  • Jointly develop evaluation and accountability
    plan with DESE/ MELL staff

    science teachers that will be trained in the SIOP
  • Participation of cadre members in a Summer SIOP

Use of Funds
  • Create opportunities for enhanced and ongoing
    professional development of mathematics and
    science teachers that improve their abilities to
    teach both content and language to limited

    of the higher education teacher-training
    community outside the partnership in order to
    increase capacity to support standards-based
    teaching and learning.
  • Compile and deliver a Professional Development
    packet to the MO DESE at the conclusion of the
    project. This packet will include the
    professional development materials (e.g.,
