On May 27, 2009, we published in the Federal Register (74 FR 25221) a notice inviting applications for new FY 2009 awards for the Teacher Quality Partnership Program (Initial TQP Application Notice).

Since that time, Public Law (Pub.

L.) 111-39 was enacted, which made certain technical amendments to the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, the original statute authorizing the program.

This notice inviting applications has been updated to respond to statutory changes made to the TQP program and supersedes the Initial TQP Application Notice.

Purpose of Program:
The purposes of the Teacher Quality Partnership (TQP) Grants Program are to:
Improve student achievement; improve the quality of new and prospective teachers by improving the preparation of prospective teachers and enhancing professional development activities for new teachers; hold teacher preparation programs at institutions of higher education (IHEs) accountable for preparing highly qualified teachers; and recruit highly qualified individuals, including minorities and individuals from other occupations, into the teaching force.

More specifically, the TQP Grants Program seeks to improve the quality of new teachers by creating partnerships among IHEs, high-need school districts (local educational agencies (LEAs)) their high-need schools, and/or high-need early childhood education (ECE) program.

These partnerships would create model teacher preparation programs at the pre-baccalaureate or fifth-year level through the implementation of specific reforms of the IHE's existing teacher preparation programs, and/or model teaching residency programs for individuals with strong academic and/or professional backgrounds but without teaching experience.

The TQP Grants Program may also support school leadership programs to train superintendents, principals, ECE program directors, and other school leaders in high-need or rural LEAs.
