Application Information New York State Integration Project – Professional Learning Community (NYSIP-PLC) Grant
Purpose of Grant

New York State (NYS) has been recently found by one measure to have the most racially and socioeconomically segregated school system in the nation.1 In light of this, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) recently presented a proposed Diversity StatementAdobe PDF to the Board of Regents, outlining the positive impacts of socioeconomic, racial, and other types of integration on academic outcomes for elementary and secondary-school students.

In an effort to support this renewed commitment to racial, socioeconomic, and other types of student integration in New York State, the NYSIP-PLC grant offers funds to assist LEAs to promote staff understanding of the benefits of integration and to assist staff to develop individualized district integration plans.

The purpose of the NYSIP program is to increase student achievement in New York State public schools by encouraging greater racial/ethnic, special education, English Language Learner/Multilingual Learner (ELL/MLL), and socioeconomic integration in Title I schools, particularly those identified for improvement. The three phases of the program are intended to provide districts with the funding and support to 1) learn about the benefits of integration and develop a sustainable integration strategy for the district, 2) refine their strategy and implement a limited pilot, and 3) fully implement a district integration plan. The NYSIP-PLC is Phase I of the three-phased grant program. Brief descriptions of Phases II and III can also be found below.

Title I School Improvement Grant funds under Section 1003 must be used to support Local Education Agencies (LEAs) that receive Title I funds and:

  • Serve the lowest achieving schools;
  • Demonstrate the greatest need for such funding;
  • Demonstrate the strongest commitment to ensuring that such funds are used to enable the lowest achieving schools to meet the progress goals in their school improvement plans; and
  • Have been identified for improvement based on the State’s accountability system.

Eligibility

NYSED has established a list of eligible districts (see below on page 3) from among those districts that (1) identified as Title I Focus Districts, (2) have at least one Priority or Focus School and (3) have a district poverty rate (FRPL) of 50%. From among the cohort of districts that meet those initial criteria, NYSED then identified districts that ranked among the top 18 in the state related to within District Overall Segregation2 and the top 12 in the State for Between District Segregation.3 Eligible school districts must demonstrate that their proposed integration plans are designed in part to improve educational outcomes for students who attend Priority or Focus Schools.


2 Defined as districts where the demographic makeup of their schools (e.g., Race, Free and Reduced Price Lunch (FRPL), English Language Learners (ELLs) and Students with Disabilities) differ most from their districtwide demographics, such that individual schools in the district have very different demographic groups represented in each school.

3 Defined as districts where the demographic makeup of their district (e.g., Race, FRPL, English Language Learners and Students with Disabilities) differs most from their county demographics, such that the district has a very different demographic makeup as compared to other districts in the county.
