Additional Information

Agency Name: Department of Education
Description: Note: Each funding opportunity description is a synopsis of information in the Federal Register application notice. For specific information about eligibility, please see the official application notice. The official version of this document is the document published in the Federal Register. Free Internet access to the official edition of the Federal Register and the Code of Federal Regulations is available on GPO Access at: http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/index.html. Please review the official application notice for pre-application and application requirements, application submission information, performance measures, priorities and program contact information. Purpose of Program: The Skills for Success Program supports Local Educational Agencies \1\ (LEAs) and their partners in implementing, evaluating, and refining tools and approaches for developing the non-cognitive skills of middle-grades students in order to increase student success. Grants provide funding for the implementation, evaluation, and refinement of existing tools and approaches (e.g., digital games, growth mindset classroom activities, experiential learning opportunities) that integrate the development of students’ non- cognitive skills into classroom-level activities and existing strategies designed to improve schools. As grantees implement their projects, we expect them to collect, analyze, and use data to improve their tools and strategies throughout the project period. Ultimately, we expect grantees to identify and validate scalable tools and approaches that can be used by educators of high-need middle-grades students across the country. In addition, we expect that these grants will help build the capacity of LEAs and their partners to conduct research and apply that research to school- and district-level practices. This program also encourages sustainable partnerships that can continue the use of effective tools and approaches beyond the grant period. ————————————————————————— \1\ Defined terms are noted throughout this document with initial capitals. ————————————————————————— Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.215H.
