The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation recently awarded a $2.4 million grant to the state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction that will help create support systems for educators.

The three-year grant will support Washington teachers and administrators as they transition to new Common Core standards and Next Generation science standards. As part of the grant, OSPI will partner with state and national organizations, including Washington’s Association of Educational Service Districts Network, Learning Forward Washington, the Association of Washington School Principals, Washington Association of School Administrators, Washington STEM and the Puget Sound region’s Road Map Race to the Top Project.
