Section 65.160 Allocation of Funds
a) The State Superintendent of Education shall approve initial applications for competitive funding and make final determinations regarding the amounts to be provided based upon the total funds appropriated for this initiative, the amounts necessary to fund the top-ranked proposals, and the need to distribute the benefits of innovative induction models on a statewide basis. The minimum grant to be awarded will range from $1,200 to $1,500 for each teacher served in a program that has been approved for funding under this Part.
b) It is the intention of the State Board of Education to approve continuation funding for projects under this Part prior to providing funding for new applicants. Funding for existing grantees for each year shall be contingent upon the availability of funds for the program and evidence presented in renewal proposals that the projects have been implemented in accordance with the approved grant agreements and that the recipients continue to need additional State resources in order to implement their programs. If funds remain available for new programs, an RFP shall be issued as provided in Section 65.140 of this Part.
c) In accordance with Section 21A-25 of the School Code, in years when sufficient funding is available for a statewide implementation of the beginning teacher induction grant program, the minimum grant to be awarded will be $1,200 for each teacher served in a program approved for funding under this Part.
