Previous Programs & Initiatives
Connections for Classrooms was a grant program joining multiple state agencies around the common goal of ensuring Georgia schools and classrooms have the high-speed broadband access required for digital and blended learning. It is investing more than $80 million in state funds to build out network infrastructure in Georgia districts and state charter schools.
The Governor's Office of Student Achievement (GOSA), in conjunction with Georgia Public Broadcasting, is committed to providing actionable tools and resources to assist educators, families, and community stakeholders in advancing student academic achievement throughout the state.
The Early Language and Literacy Mini-Grant Program aims to invest in community partnerships to support efforts to improve the early language and literacy development of Georgia’s young children. The Early Language and Literacy Mini-Grant Program is a joint effort between GOSA and the Sandra Dunagan Deal Center for Early Language and Literacy at Georgia College to support collaborative partnerships in projects targeting birth to age eight language and literacy development needs.
GOSA manages the contract that funds K-12 schools that are located in rural RESA areas to participate in national Project Lead The Way’s STEM programs. These programs provide K-12 pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical sciences along with in-depth teacher professional development. This contract allows students and educators opportunities to engage in a high-quality STEM-based curriculum.
In August 2010, the US Department of Education selected Georgia as a second round winner for the Race to the Top (RT3) grant. RT3 was a $4 billion federal fund through the US Department of Education that provided competitive grants to states to improve education outcomes. Georgia was awarded $400 million over four years to implement a robust statewide education reform strategy.
The Real Teachers, Real Voices campaign highlights exceptional educators around the state through video. The initiative stems from feedback from Deal's Teacher Advisory Committee.
