Proposal Brief

The NET-Q: Network for Enhancing Teaching-Quality is a competitive grant for the Teacher Quality Partnership Grant (TQP) from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Innovation and Improvement.

The NET-Q Team believes that this initiative will:

  1. Improve student achievement,
  2. improve the quality of prospective and new teachers,
  3. Hold teacher preparation programs accountable for preparing and collaborating with high needs districts/schools to produce high quality teachers, and
  4. Recruit and retain highly qualified individuals (including less-represented groups and individuals from other occupations) with particular emphasis on high need/critical shortage areas.
