Due to COVID-19, new Technical Centers That Work (TCTW) grants were not issued for the 2020-2021 school year. However, the Office of College and Career Readiness is pleased to announce that TCTW grants will once again be available to schools for the 2021-22 school year. Career Centers, with district approval, are eligible to apply for these funds to assist them in their improvement efforts at the area career center or in combination with sending high schools, middle schools or their community colleges.
TCTW is a program from the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) that “helps leaders and teachers adopt continuous improvement practices that foster rigorous academic and career pathway curricula, project-based instruction, work-based learning and personalized supports.”

The application for new or continuing (after initial five year grant cycle has expired) state TCTW grants will be posted in March.
