Like the Dwight D. Eisenhower Professional Development Program, which it replaces, the federally funded TLQP Program is a competitive grant opportunity to support local, regional, and statewide initiatives to improve the teaching of core academic subjects. With an emphasis on the educational needs of high-need schools and the goal of improving student achievement, the TLQP Program promotes collaborative relationships that will improve both teacher preparation programs and professional development for in-service teachers. The TLQP Program requires that the collaborating partners include the teacher preparation division of an institution of higher education, a college or division of arts and sciences, and at least one high-need local educational agency. By using educational activities that have been tested and judged effective, successful TLQP programs support current educators to help all students improve their academic achievement.
The TLQP Educational Leadership program Enhancement Project is a competitive grant opportunity to support local, regional, and statewide initiatives to improve the teaching of core academic subjects. The emphasis is on the educational needs of high-need schools thereby improving student achievement. The Educational Leadership Program Enhancement Project is intended to be a catalyst for the kind of collaboration that can generate significant and sustainable improvements in providing aspiring educational leaders with the knowledge and skills required to successfully lead in high needs schools. The Educational Leadership Program Enhancement Project offers an opportunity to meet these ambitious goals by developing model programs for the development of educational leaders. The New York State Education Department’s plan for a Cohesive Leadership System in New York State is premised upon the recognition of a growing body of research that evidences the strong correlation between school leadership and improved student learning.
