ERS wants to congratulate the latest seven K–12 schools recognized as “breakthrough” models for the Next Generation Learning Challenge’s third wave of investment. We believe these cutting edge models will transform schools—and eventually, school systems. NGLC’s Wave IIIa’s cycle of funding identifies breakthrough models for college readiness—fundamentally redesigned, whole-school models that combine the best of mortar and online learning. Grantees are developing new, whole-school solutions to improve student performance across secondary education. The seven new grantees will receive $150,000 pre-launch planning grants, and all will be eligible for up to $300,000 in one-to-one matching funds. ERS Executive Director Karen Hawley Miles was part of the panel review process for grantee selection. As part of our work with urban school system leaders, we will be working to bring practical insights from these pioneers.
The grantees for secondary education are:
NGLC is a collaborative partnership led by EDUCAUSE. Other partners include the League for Innovation in the Community College, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL), and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).
