SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Full Text of Announcement I. Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The purposes of this program are to: (1) Help address State-identified needs for personnel preparation in special education, early intervention, related services, and regular education to work with children, including infants and toddlers, with disabilities; and (2) ensure that those personnel have the necessary skills and knowledge, derived from practices that have been determined through scientifically based research and experience, to be successful in serving those children. Priority: In accordance with 34 CFR 75.105(b)(2)(v), this priority is from allowable activities specified in the statute (see sections 662 and 681 of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)). Absolute Priority: For FY 2017 and any subsequent year in which we make awards from the list of unfunded applications from this competition, this priority is an absolute priority. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(3), we consider only applications that meet this priority. This priority is: National Center for Improving Teacher and Leader Performance to Better Serve Children with Disabilities. Background: Meeting the diverse needs of students with disabilities in inclusive classrooms and other school settings requires a complex combination of knowledge and skills, including the use of practices supported by evidence. Organizations such as the Council of Chief State School Officers and the Council for Exceptional Children, therefore, have developed model standards of essential knowledge and skills that they believe teachers need in order to customize learning and be effective in improving student achievement, including the achievement of students with disabilities. In 2015, the National Policy Board for Educational Administration adopted a new set of professional standards for leaders, known as the Professional Standards for Education Leaders. These standards describe the PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23207 knowledge and skills education leaders need to ensure every student is prepared for the 21st century. The curricula in teacher and leader preparation programs must be better aligned with State standards that reflect current knowledge and skills and the use of practices supported by evidence. Further, under the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), States must annually report on the quality of teacher preparation programs, identify low-performing programs, and provide them with technical assistance (TA). States will need high-quality TA for these activities. Finally, under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), States must ensure that low-income and minority students are not served at disproportionate rates by ineffective, out-of-field, or inexperienced teachers. In addition, teacher and school leader incentive programs are authorized under Title II of the ESSA, and the Title II set-aside allows a variety of activities, including reforming teacher and leader certification, teacher evaluation, alternative certification, recruitment and retention, professional development (PD), and the TA provided to local educational agencies (LEAs). State educational agencies (SEAs) and institutions of higher education (IHEs) need high-quality TA to carry out these reform efforts. This competition will fund a national center to assist SEAs, IHEs, and LEAs, in addressing all of these needs to help ensure that teachers and leaders have the necessary knowledge and skills to successfully meet the diverse needs of students with disabilities. Priority: The purpose of this priority is to fund a cooperative agreement to establish and operate a national center for improving teacher and leader performance to better serve children with disabilities to achieve, at a minimum, the following outcomes: (a) Improved capacity of States to review and strengthen certification or licensure standards and requirements, in collaboration with IHEs and LEAs that operate teacher and leader preparation programs, in order to ensure that these standards: (1) Are derived from frameworks and practices supported by evidence; and (2) reflect the knowledge and skills necessary for teachers and leaders to successfully serve students with disabilities in inclusive classrooms and school settings, including, at a minimum, competencies in evidence-based E:\FR\FM\22MYN1.SGM 22MYN1
