Funding Opportunity: New York State Integration Project – Professional Learning Community (NYSIP-PLC) Grant

New York State (NYS) has been recently found by one measure to have the most racially and socioeconomically segregated school system in the nation. In light of this, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) recently presented a proposed Diversity StatementAdobe PDF to the Board of Regents, outlining the positive impacts of socioeconomic, racial, and other types of integration on academic outcomes for elementary and secondary-school students. In an effort to support this renewed commitment to racial, socioeconomic, and other types of student integration in New York State, the NYSIP-PLC grant offers funds to assist LEAs to promote staff understanding of the benefits of integration and to assist staff to develop individualized district integration plans.

The Game is Changing. What Will Be Expected of You?

“When we were doing our studies for the National Academies, the typical first response of university presidents or CFOs or provosts was to say: ‘I understand things are changing very rapidly, but I'll ask my CIO to take care of it. The CIO usually can.’ We would then ask: ‘Suppose you wake up in the morning and come in to your office and nothing works anymore. You can't access e-mail. All of your course systems have collapsed. Who fixes the problem?’ They begin to scratch their heads, and pretty soon it's like the five phases of grief. They start off with denial and anger, move through bargaining and depression, and finally reach acceptance.” — James J. Duderstadt, Change and the Research University
