Additional Eligibility Criteria:

-Applications may be submitted for Middle Schools and High Schools only.

1) The upper threshold for the total number of students to be served is not exceeded
2) All students within each applicant school are eligible to receive service (i.e., partial school deployments serving a single grade level or group within a school will not be considered)

-Consortium applications (i.e., multiple school districts represented on a single application) will not be accepted. However, smaller school districts that are located in roughly the same geographic area that wish to collaborate with one another to reach the target award size may do so by submitting their own individual applications and indicating a desire to collaborate in their responses to the first narrative question on the application.
