8  Race to the Top  All funding is for Early Childhood Challenge  School Improvement Grants  States may make 5-year awards  SIG funds may be used for an evidence-based whole-school reform strategy undertaken in partnership with a strategy developer  SIG funds may also be used to implement a State-determined school improvement strategy that has been established by the SEA with the approval of the Secretary  Charter Schools  Funds may be used to support preschool education in charter schools  Javits Gifted and Talented  Funding restored ($5 million), all for the national research center


10  Race to the Top/Early Learning Challenge  $250 million  Grants to States, must be awarded by December 31  Joint ED/HHS administration  For activities that build the capacity of States to develop, enhance, or expand high-quality preschool programs for children from families at or below 200 percent of the poverty line  Subgrantees that are LEAs must form “strong partnerships” with early learning providers, and vice versa  Report language: the Secretary shall make two types of awards – to “low-capacity” and “high-capacity” States

11  Administration requested about $194 million; final number is $90 million; continuation base only $3 million.  FY 14 proposals:  School Climate Transformation Grants (separate SEA and LEA competitions) to to help schools train teachers and other school staff to implement evidence-based strategies to improve school climate  Projected application publication date: April 11  Projected application deadline: May 21  Originally planned amount of funding: $50 million

13  Grants to LEAs for literacy projects involving literacy and to national organizations for book distribution  $25 million available in FY 2014; all for new grants  Projected application notice publication: June 18  Projected deadline: July 18

14  Appears to be new competition funded from SIG national activities set-aside  Projected application notice publication: April 30  Projected deadline: June 29

15  Appropriation is $49.6 million  Continuations should be about $35 million  Projected announcement date: March 18  Projected deadline: May 2

16  $248.2 million appropriation  Appropriations language requires at least:  $45 million for Replication and Expansion (Charter Management Organizations)  $11 million for State Facilities Incentive Grants  $12 million for Credit Enhancement for Facilities  CMO competition should be $15 million; projected to begin February 5  SEA competition unlikely  ED still developing final plans

17  $25 million appropriation  About $15 million available for new awards  ED website shows plans for competitions under both Model Arts Program and Professional Development for Arts Educators, with dates TBD

18  $141.6 million appropriation  All of it available for new awards  Grants do not have to be made until December 31  ED has announced plans to request applications under all 3 program categories (Scale-Up, Validation, Development). Dates are TBD.  March 2013 regulations will likely govern, without change – Priorities for improving teacher and principal effectiveness, turning around low- performing schools, STEM, etc.

19  Appropriation = $74.6 million  Continuations approximately $39 million  Department has announced plans to “fund down the slate”

20  $301.6 million appropriation  Probably enough for $70 million in new State and Partnership grants  No TRIO precollege (Talent Search, Upward Bound) competitions planned

21  Release delayed until March 4 (one month late)  The Budget Control Act caps the amount for “non-defense discretionary” spending at only slightly above the 2014 level ($492.356 billion vs. $491.773 billion)  Needs in other areas (e.g., VA health care, Pell Grants) may make it difficult to achieve gains or even hold the line in K-12 education  Appropriators may try to move quickly

22  “ConnectED” (E-Rate) goal of connecting 99% of K-12 students with next-generation wireless and broadband technology within 5 years. President will announce philanthropic partnerships with companies like Apple, Microsoft, Spring, Verizon  Administration will announce winners of $100 million DOL high school initiative (funded with H-1B visa fees)  No mention of ESEA reauthorization (indicative of low priority?)
