The purpose of the Exemplary School Models and Practices grant is to close the achievement gap and increase the academic achievement and college and career readiness (CCR) of students in urban school districts with an emphasis on boys and young men of color.
The State Education Department will award grants to districts that will develop and/or expand exemplary high-quality college and career readiness school models, programs and practices that demonstrate cultural and linguistic responsiveness, that emphasize the needs of boys and young men of color.
The allocation for 2017-2018 is expected to be $2,000,000. The initial project period will be from September 1, 2017 – August 31, 2018, and for two subsequent years beginning September 1, 2018, subject to the continuation of the State appropriation. Awards will be made as follows: two (2) to districts contracting to provide American Indian Educational Services, five (5) to eligible districts in New York City, and seven (7) to eligible districts in the rest of the state for a total of fourteen (14) awards. In the event that fewer than the designated number of awards are made in a given region, those remaining awards will be made statewide based on the next highest ranked application.
