|In early December, ODE announced two Strategic Initiative Grants related to Minority Educator Recruitment and Retention. Due to feedback and questions received by the field, two changes are being made to these grants:
• The deadline for both grants is being extended until February 14, 2014.
• The RFP for the Oregon Minority Educator Pipeline Models Grant has been updated to clarify the expectations of the grant. Updated RFPs for both grants are now available on the Strategic Initiatives Website at: http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=5400.
A webinar with additional information on both grants will be held on January 8, 2014 at 10 am. For additional information on the webinar please go to: http://www.ode.state.or.us/news/announcements/announcement.aspx?ID=9542&TypeID=4
