Early Childhood Quality Grant – Seeking Forward Thinking Partners

We are excited to share the news of this competitive grant opportunity for VPI and Early Childhood Special Education programs across the state. This grant provides selected forward-thinking school divisions with funds to build local capacity to conduct CLASS® observations by local observers two times a year and who will also provide targeted feedback to teachers resulting in continuous improvement of teacher-child interactions.  The ongoing feedback to VPI teachers and assistants on the quality of teacher-child interactions in their classrooms will assist in preparing children for success in kindergarten.

For more information, click here or see Superintendent’s Memo #06619 posted on Friday, March 22 for complete details and for the Early Childhood Quality Grant Application.
