The Final Priorities, Requirements, Definitions, and Selection Criteria for the State Tribal Education Partnership (“STEP”) Program, can be seen here. You can see an overview on the Federal Register site, here.
The Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education announces priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection criteria for the State Tribal Education Partnership (STEP) program. The Assistant Secretary may use one or more of these priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection criteria for competitions in fiscal year(FY) 2015 and later years. We take this action to enable tribal educational agencies (TEAs) to administer formula grant programs under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA), and to improve the partnership between TEAs and the State educational agencies (SEAs) and local educational agencies (LEAs) that educate students from the affected tribes.
You can see TEDNA’s comments on these Priorities, along with a webinar and other information about the STEP Program here.
