The State Personnel Development Grant (SPDG) is in its third year of implementation. There are 65 schools across the state participating and benefiting from the work of the SPDG grant. The Connecticut State Department of Education, in partnership with the State Education Resource Center (SERC), will be seeking additional schools to participate in the opportunity afforded through the SPDG grant this spring.
The central focus of the SPDG grant is to facilitate the statewide implementation of Scientific Research-Based Interventions (SRBI). This grant and its focus holds opportunities for schools to receive assistance in providing high-quality instruction and intervention for all students while improving educational outcomes specifically for students with disabilities, students of color and students acquiring English. Interested schools are encouraged to consider participating in this grant funded opportunity.

The Connecticut SPDG will work to expand and sustain a coordinated, statewide system of professional development, coaching, and support to schools, PreK-12, to improve educational outcomes through a continuum of academic and behavior supports for all students. It will increase the number of schools in Connecticut implementing scientifically research-based core literacy instruction and school-wide positive behavioral supports driven by common core state standards and the use of data driven decision-making. All public schools, PreK-12, including public charter and magnet schools, within the state of Connecticut are eligible to apply.
Proposals are to include one (1) original AND one (1) electronic version and must be received by 4:30 p.m. on April 30, 2013, irrespective of postmark date. For further information about Connecticut’s SPDG, please visit the Connecticut SPDG website at www.ctserc.org/spdg.
