Summary and Application for Remainder of School Year 2019-2020

by National Education Foundation (NEF), global non-profit leader in K-12 STEM Education
and State University of New York (SUNY), the largest university in the U.S.

Evidence-basedSUNY evaluation shows that most of our students advance one grade level in math/reading in 25-35 learning hours. For example, Somerton, AZ, a severely disadvantaged school district (100% F/R meals, 95% English language learners) students have made more than 2-grade level progress in one year! Many of our School Districts have gone up from the bottom 20% to the top 20% in state test scores in math and reading!  (See https://www.stemnef.org/evidence/)

100% Grant: 100 students (K-12) in your District will receive top-rated individualized learning software mapped to your state standards, PD, weekly SUNY evaluations and SUNY certificates.

Award: We will select 100 grantees nationally (school or district). 

Proven Results:  Students are advancing a minimum of 1-grade level increase (GLI) in reading/math 25-35 learning hours!
