Collaborative congratulates our client, Denver Public Schools (DPS), along with their partners, University of Colorado at Boulder (CU Boulder) and Padres y Jóvenes Unidos (Padres), for being one of 49 winners of the Investing in Innovation, or i3, grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Education in the amount of up to $25 million.
DPS, along with their partners, University of Colorado at Boulder (CU Boulder) and Padres y Jóvenes Unidos (Padres), will use these funds to deliver on Collaborative Strategic Reading Colorado (CSR-CO). The mission of CSR-CO is to improve literacy and bi-literacy instruction and achievement in schools with high numbers of ELL students, by implementing successful strategies used in linguistically diverse classrooms across content areas to address the linguistic and academic needs of English-language learners (ELLs) and students with disabilities at the middle school level.
Collaborative Communications Group worked alongside DPS, CU Boulder and Padres until the May 12, 2010 i3 deadline and provided strategic guidance, writing, editing, facilitation and partnership management to ensure the most accurate, comprehensive and reflective proposal was submitted to the Department of Education.
We are humbled and honored to have worked alongside these partners to help craft their strategies and application.
