Grants Information


Right 4 Rural Javits Grant Home Page

Right 4 Rural is a project with great promise to increase the identification of gifted students from underrepresented populations. Right 4 Rural provides services to selected administrative units (AUs) so that the proportionality of diverse student groups in their respective gifted populations becomes more similar to that of their total school community and to the state total gifted population average of 7%. To this end, leaders and teachers within the administrative units receive professional development tailored to reframing their gifted program and instructional practices to address unique local needs and resources.
