NGLC Announces $12M for Breakthrough Schools: 30 Planning & 20 Launch Grants

The Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) announced $12M in grant funding for 30 planning grants and 20 launch grants to support “Breakthrough Schools.” The focus is on secondary schools (grades 6-12) that are focused on personalized learning in order to achieve aggressive outcomes: 1.5 years of growth annually and 80% college readiness rates. 

Given Wave IV’s focus on supporting School Developers, now is probably an appropriate time to link back to my post from a few days ago: Hardware is Not a Strategy (and Other Advice for School Developers: Part I).

Finally, if you’re interested in applying for a Wave IV grant, consider taking a look at the resources I’ve compiled on my “Lots of Resources” page.
