Purpose: The 2016 New Jersey Achievement Coaches Program is a state-funded initiative designed to empower several of New Jersey's outstanding educators to provide direct support to their peers through high quality training and resources. NJDOE will establish one or more cohorts (per LEA) consisting of teachers and administrators who will attend state-led caching sessions to receive materials and training on how to turn-key those sessions to other educators. A companion grant program (Achievement Coaches Training Partners Program) will be offered to support this effort. This limited competitive grant program is open to LEAs that did not participate in the 2015 Achievement Coaches program or the 2015 Achievement Coaches Content Developers program. The number of cohorts a LEA may apply for is contingent on the enrollment of the district. The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) has established a 9 month grant program using state appropriated funds. Based on the availability of state resources, this seven month grant program will begin March 1, 2016 and end on November 30, 2016.

Eligible Agencies: Public LEAs that did not participate in Year One of the Achievement Coaches or Content Developers program

Approximate Number of Awards: 12 Grant Program Type: Limited Competitive
