NTN Texas | Planning Grant 2020/2021

Welcome | NTN Planning Grant

In a landmark move, the Texas legislature recently passed HB 3, which offers a financial incentive for engaging in school design and professional development with New Tech Network. In the Career and Technology Education section of HB 3, schools are entitled to supplemental funding if they have daily attendance in approved CTE courses. Campuses that are New Tech Network members qualify for an additional $50 per student allotment.

The purpose of this Planning Grant is to provide competitive grants to applicants with an interest in improving student achievement and attainment by implementing the New Tech Network school model and innovative practices. New Tech Network’s comprehensive approach to school-based innovation through project-based learning and work-based education has a proven track record in Texas schools.

The New Tech Network Planning Grant provides schools or charters with:

  • Participation in New Tech Network’s School Design Academy for school teams
  • Custom School Readiness Assessment for school teams
  • NTN Model Overview workshop for school and district teams
  • Full access to NTN School Design Studio self-paced courses
  • NTN virtual learning resources
Submit an NTN School Application: The first step in the process is to complete a School Application. This document highlights your community’s plans for developing community awareness, facilities, technology, staffing, and financial sustainability. NTN uses this application to develop a support plan that is tailored to the size of the school and the design of the implementation plan. 

Don't wait to apply!
