PA Department Of Education: Funding to Support Teacher And Principal Preparation – Aug 22

Posted by PA Department of Education on July 26, 2022

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) has announced the availability of three grant programs totaling $5 million to support Pennsylvania’s educator workforce and increase the number and diversity of teachers and school leaders.

“One of the best ways we can rebuild our educator workforce is by providing opportunities to those who will pursue education careers in the future,” said Acting Secretary of Education Eric Hagarty. “These three new grant programs will lay the groundwork for strong teacher and principal preparation from the time they are candidates in educator-preparation programs to those critical first years that impact their ability to remain in these critical roles. These targeted investments build upon the Wolf Administration’s commitment to education over the past eight years and will help set the course for the future of public education in the commonwealth.”

Through the grant initiative, educator-preparation programs will be invited to apply for grants to design and implement innovative solutions to strengthen and diversify the teacher and school leader pipelines. Priority will be given to educator preparation programs that partner with local education agencies (LEAs), and other organizations relevant to the educator workforce.

The three grant programs are:

  • The Aspiring to Educate STEM-Computer Science (A2E STEM-CS) grant program,
  • The Innovative Principal Prep 2 Practice grant program, and
  • The Innovative Teacher Prep 2 Practice grant program

Eligible applicants should apply by August 22, 2022.
