    NJSTA stands united with NSTA and NJEA in our commitment to do more to embrace diversity, equity, and respect. We condemn racism in all its forms and manifestations.  

    We stand alongside our colleagues, members, educators, students, and families in calling for justice.  And, we will not ignore the systemic and institutionalized racism that persists in our country and communities.

    To continue this important conversation, we are planning NJSTAChats sessions to promote discussions on culturally responsive and anti-racism teaching for diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in science classrooms.   Please join us for our next NJSTAChats sessions on July 15th, when we host Dr. Doug Larkin discussing his book “Teaching Science in Diverse Classrooms,” and on August 5th, when we host Dr. Montana Vasquez-Grinnell sharing her dissertation work,  “Persistence of Vision: factors influencing the retention of women of color in STEM programs. ” (Registration for August 5th coming soon)

    Please visit EVENTS for more information.

The Well-Rounded Education through Student-Centered Funding Demonstration Grants program provides competitive grants to local educational agencies (LEAs) to demonstrate model programs for providing well-rounded education opportunities through the development and implementation of student-centered funding systems based on weighted per-pupil allocations under Section 1501 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). Grants awarded under this program are intended to help build the capacity of LEAs to provide well-rounded education to establish models for expanding and enhancing delivery of such opportunities for educationally disadvantaged students. The deadline to submit applications for this grant is July 10, 2020.


    To provide support with applying for this grant, on May 26, 2020 from 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM ET the Office of School Support and Accountability Programs in collaboration with the Title IV, Part A Technical Assistance Center (T4PA Center) will be hosting a technical assistance webinar for prospective applicants. The purpose of the webinar is to provide more insight into the grant program and to answer any questions that prospective applicants may have about the program or application process. Registration is required for this event. To register, please click here. If you are unable to participate during the live event, this webinar will be recorded and available for reference on the T4PA Center Website, and on ED’s associated grant Website.
