Massachusetts has set forth an ambitious goal: By 2022, candidates prepared by Massachusetts' preparation providers will enter classrooms and demonstrate results on par with peers in their third year of teaching. As part of this core priority area of improving educator effectiveness from day 1, the EPIC Partnership Innovation Grant will promote innovative partnership models—both burgeoning and existing—that seek to change the way they do business in order to strengthen the teacher workforce from preparation through employment. ESE will regard awardees of this grant as innovators in advancing effective, evidence-based partnership models. ESE will collect, document, and share promising practices developed by awardees through this grant program in order to inform other Massachusetts districts and educator preparation organizations.
