Grants and Other Financial Assistance Programs: FY2013

Continuing Supplementary Support to Specific Underperforming School Districts: Level 4 District Support for Superintendent Search
Fund Code: 220N

Purpose: The purpose of this state-funded opportunity is to provide continuing supplementary support to large urban districts designated as Level 4 and currently engaged in a search for a new superintendent.

This funding opportunity is intended to support work that primarily focuses on the district standard of Leadership and Governance, but ultimately will impact the other five District standards as well:
  • Curriculum and Instruction
  • Assessment
  • Human Resources and Professional Development
  • Student Support
  • Financial and Asset Management
Priorities: These funds are intended to subsidize the work of a school superintendent search firm designated by the district to lead the search for superintendent who is qualified and prepared to help the district implement its Accelerated Improvement Plan and dramatically improve learning outcomes for all students.
Eligibility: Only New Bedford Public Schools is eligible at this time.
Funding: $25,000
Fund Use: Funds can be used for activities and initiatives consistent with ESE's agreements with the district regarding its superintendent search.
