The Board of Regents administers a portion of Title II, Part A, Improving Teacher Quality State Grants funds to make competitive grants to eligible partnerships comprised of at least one institution of higher education (IHE) and at least one high need local education agency (LEA). The BOR invites applications through a Request for Proposals (RFP) available at this link: http://www.sdbor.edu/grants/nclb/ .
Persons interested in preparing applications should review the RFP carefully as there are significant changes. The RFP (including Appendices) has been revised to reflect the South Dakota Department of Education's current priorities under the NCLB Act. Proposals are due February 14, 2014.
