As schools and districts strive to meet their existing technology needs and prepare for the future, access to federal and state funding, along with other grants, is making a major difference in whether students engage in 21st century learning or are left behind. And with online assessments now being required in many states, reliable broadband access is also essential so that students’ knowledge and skills are accurately represented, and technology is not a barrier to achievement and its documentation.
Effective social emotional learning (SEL) requires a thorough understanding of the student population’s needs, training to integrate SEL into everyday lessons, and the instructional resources. But although educators and education advocates acknowledge the importance of SEL, the funding has lagged behind. In the edWebinar, “Funding Social Emotional Learning: Where’s the Money?” Dr. Rita Oates, President of Oates Associates, explained that money can be found for SEL, but teachers need to be ready to tackle the world of grants. While employing a professional grant writer can be advantageous, Dr. Oates offered advice for those who will be overseeing the process or who plan to go after the funding themselves.
In this edWebinar, Dr. Rita Oates, President of Oates Associates, helps you think about how you might fund social emotional learning (SEL) activities for your district, school or classroom and where you might find funding.
This live, interactive event will leave you with a better understanding of available funds aligned to language learning and of strategies for sourcing the funds your language program needs.

If your school does not qualify for Title I, does that mean it’s impossible to get grants? Not at all! You may have some students on free lunch, but not enough to qualify for Title I status. While many grants target underserved populations, you still can find grants and other funding to help pay for what your school needs, and what you want for your classroom.
What exactly is involved in writing grant applications? Who should be writing them? Where do you find out about available grant sources? How hard is it? Can you do it? If any of these questions sound familiar, then you have much in common with anyone who has ever submitted a grant application.
