SEED Partnership Program Timeline EXTENDED to Sept 19

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) is offering a unique opportunity for organizations that are implementing innovative approaches to improve educator preparation and development. If you are working on an innovative strategy for preparing or supporting educators, you could be matched up with a national non-profit that will serve as a thought partner for your efforts. The national non-profits have experience implementing evidence-based solutions to prepare and develop teachers and principals. The non-profits will provide feedback and guidance based on their extensive experience working with teachers and principals across the country. Check out the SEED Partnership flyer.

If you are interested, complete this short form by September 19th to express interest in participating. We encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to receive support for your efforts.

Here are key details:


  • This opportunity is open to state and local education agencies, educator preparation programs, and other education organizations that are planning or implementing an innovative approach to preparing or developing educators. We will select up to two organizations or agencies to participate.
  • The national non-profits providing the support are participating in ED’s Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED) grant program.. The participating SEED grantees are 
    • National Board for Professional Teaching Standards
    • National Forum to Accelerate Middle Grades Reform
    • National Institute for Excellence in Teaching
    • National Institute for School Leadership
    • National Writing Project
    • Teach For America
    • WestEd
  • The partnership involves monthly calls during which the SEED grantee will provide feedback and guidance to inform your efforts.
