Eligible Partnerships Postsecondary Grant Application Guidelines for Assistance for Teachers Teaching with Type 01 Emergency Permits to Become ''Highly Qualified'' as Defined by No Child Left Behind

[36 Pa.B. 4508]
[Saturday, August 12, 2006]

   The Department of Education (Department) has established Eligible Partnerships Postsecondary Grant Application Guidelines (Guidelines) to provide direction to eligible partnerships for submitting applications targeting assistance for teachers to become highly qualified under the No Child Left Behind Act. An eligible partnership that receives a grant under these Guidelines shall limit its programs to those that provide an innovative approach for classroom teachers currently teaching with a Type 01 emergency permit in a high-need local educational agency to earn a teacher intern certificate after having fulfilled all of the entrance requirements and thereafter completing the certificate program within 2 to 3 years--although a 2-year model is preferred. The areas of certification will be limited to the core academic subjects of English, reading or language arts, mathematics, science, foreign languages, civics and government, economics, arts, history and geography. The Guidelines define a partnership that is eligible to apply; each partnership must designate either an institution of higher education or an intermediate unit as the lead organization to execute a contract or memorandum of understanding with the Commonwealth. Approximately $2.5 million is available on a competitive basis under these Guidelines. Three to five contracts or memoranda of understanding will be awarded in amounts not to exceed $750,000.

   Copies of the Guidelines are available on the Department's web page at or from the issuing office, which is the sole point of contact for the Guidelines: Division of Program Services, Bureau of Postsecondary Services, Department of Education, 333 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17126-0333, (717) 772-3623, TDD (717) 783-8445.

   A preproposal conference is scheduled for August 23, 2006, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Honors Suite, 333 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17126-0333. Attendance at the preproposal conference is a prerequisite for submitting an application.

   Applications submitted in response to the Guidelines for assisting teachers with Type 01 emergency permits to become highly qualified are due in the Division of Program Services no later than 5 p.m., Friday, September 15, 2006.
