Competency-based education grant application has launched
The Legislature has directed the Iowa Department of Education to establish a competency-based education program that will award a total of $100,000 in grants for schools and districts to develop, implement, and evaluate pilot projects.
Applications are being accepted through Friday, September 27. Districts and schools awarded the grants will become the Iowa CBE Collaborative.
The group will engage in collaborative inquiry to investigate, develop, and implement competency-based educational pathways for their students and create a framework to guide the statewide implementation of competency-based education.
