ICTQ Model Implementation District FAQ and Application
The Indiana Center for Teacher Quality (ICTQ) will be supporting up to six districts in Indiana to become Model Implementation Districts. Attached you will find two documents:
1. An FAQ that provides answers to questions that you may have about this opportunity
2. The application form with related information about applying
The application deadline was purposefully made five months out, knowing that spring time in Indiana schools is very busy and we want you to discuss the opportunity and plan your application in a purposeful way with your district colleagues.
If you have questions that the FAQ has not answered, please feel free to contact Kristan Sievers-Coffer,
UPDATE: This rubric will be used by the reviewers to assess the applications. We want to share this rubric with you in hopes that it can guide your application.
