Texas Reading Academy Grant

Dr. Gary Frye contributed these two Texas Reading Academy Grant proposals. The purpose of the Texas Reading Initiative is to assist schools as they strive to meet the Governor's challenge of having all children reading at or above grade level by the end of their grade and remaining on or above grade level throughout the remainder of their school career.

The goal of Texas Reading Academies (Grades 6-10) is to support this challenge for identified struggling readers in grades 6-10 by:

a) providing funding for effective instruction scientifically based on reading research and

b) enabling students through direct instructional programs to accelerate to grade level or beyond in the most expedient and effective ways possible.

SchoolGrants: Winning Mini-Grant Proposals
In 2001, SchoolGrants offered a mini-grant competition to subscribers to the SchoolGrants Biweekly Newsletter and/or purchasers of the SchoolGrants Let's Write a Grant CD. Two awards were made - one for $1,000 and a second for $500.

There were very few guidelines associated with the opportunity because of the diverse needs of the student populations represented by those eligible to apply. Any project that met the described student needs was acceptable.

The two winners of the competition were Cumberland County Schools in North Carolina and St. Joseph Elementary in Memphis, Tennessee. You may download the winning proposals, along with the RFP to which they responded, in PDF format by clicking on the links below:
