Grant Allocations & Awards: FY2018

Fund Code: 110
Resource Reallocation to District Priorities

Funds Allocated:$600,000 (Federal)
Funds Requested:$529,100
Purpose: The goal of this competitive two-year grant program is to support school districts interested in making substantial changes in resource allocation and directing more resources toward evidence-based improvement strategies. Due to increasing health insurance, retirement, and labor costs and decreasing state revenue, the near-term forecast suggests that many districts are unlikely to experience revenue increases similar to those of the past. The Department has established this grant program to encourage districts to explore new ways to make the most of the resources available to them, and has dedicated up to $600,000 for grants over a two-year period.
Number of Proposals Received:33
Number of Proposals Recommended:9
Number of Proposals Not Recommended:24
Result of Funding:
  • Examine and question resource allocation in more depth, using data available in districts along with tools provided by ESE, particularly Resource Allocation and District Action Reports (RADAR)
  • Make meaningful changes in resource allocation to support best practices and district improvement strategies
  • Measure the impact of resource shifts on the desired outcomes. Districts awarded grants will be paired with an action research consultant who will help gather data, measure impact and report results.
