Purpose: The FY20 STEM Dual Enrollment and Early College High School Pilot Program grant program is a state and funded program using a FY 20 State appropriation for STEM Dual Enrollment. This NGO is intended to implement a P-Tech 9-14 model in two comprehensive high schools. Under this model, a high school is extended to years 9-14 with the desired outcome of students graduating with a high school diploma, a two-year post-secondary degree aligned to industry needs, and internship experience leading to hiring preference commitments from industry partners. This grant program provides a single 17 month project period to cover both the planning and implementation phases of this program. Each grantee is eligible to apply for up to $200,000. Eligibility to apply for this FY20 STEM Dual Enrollment and Early College High School Pilot Program grant is open to LEAs with comprehensive high schools that have a minimum grades 9-12 enrollment of 1,000 students; and of which at least 50 percent must be considered economically disadvantaged. Funds for this program must be encumbered by June 30, 2020. The project period is February 1, 2020-June 30, 2021.
