Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Massachusetts public two-year colleges, school districts, and consortiums for programs that will improve secondary-level technical and career education statewide. Priority will be given to programs that will reduce the achievement gap for special populations on the Perkins IV core indicators of performance as set forth in Perkins IV.

The purpose of this federal grant is to assist school districts in improving secondary-level programs that meet the definition of career and technical education as contained in the Carl D. Perkins Career & Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006 P.L.109-270 (Perkins IV).

The mission of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) is to strengthen the Commonwealth's public education system so that every student is prepared to succeed in postsecondary education, compete in the global economy, and understand the rights and responsibilities of American citizens, and in so doing, to close all proficiency gaps.

The goal of Massachusetts' public K–12 education system is to prepare all students for success after high school. The five core strategies to accelerate the pace of school improvement are:

- Strengthening standards, curriculum, instruction, and assessment
- Promoting educator development
- Supporting social-emotional learning, health, and safety
- Turning around the state's lowest performing districts and schools
- Enhancing resource allocation and data use

Applicants for this grant opportunity should be deliberate and intentional in the use of grant funds to support DESE's standards and priorities.
