Number of Proposals Not Recommended: 0
Result of Funding:Funding will support 18 schools in five districts to implement a Wraparound Zone Initiative. Each district will implement the following four functions of the Wraparound model: 1) Each participating school creates a climate and culture that promotes positive social, emotional, physical, and intellectual health and growth for students, resulting in a new standard of practice understood and practiced by every member of the school community; 2) Each participating school implements a proactive system that identifies student needs in key academic and non-academic areas, and connects them to both universal supports and targeted interventions; 3) Each participating district integrates a range of resources from both within the schools and the larger community to form a robust coalition of organizations and agencies that convenes on a regular basis. The range of services includes prevention, enrichment, early intervention, and intensive/crisis response services; 4) Each participating district develops district-level systems to support the communication, collaboration, evaluation, and continuous improvement of the Wraparound Zone Initiative.

Participating districts will receive $16,000 in Massachusetts' Race to the Top funds for each participating school. Districts will also be permitted to allocate $99,000 in local Race to the Top funds to each participating school.

Grant awards range from $32,000 to $96,000.
