FY21 GLEAM: Growing Literacy Equity Across MA for the period February 3, 2021 to June 30, 2021 in the amount of $6,000.00. Grant SC21169.

Description: This grant will support the development of a proposal for the state's GLEAM grant program (Growing Literacy Equity Across MA). GLEAM provides support for districts in the effective use of formative assessment data to build a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS), an approach which utilizes an array of assessments to construct a picture of the whole child, including their cultural background and past experience. CPS will focus the GLEAM program at the Upper School level. Through the use of comprehensive array of tiered interventions targeted to each student's individual profile, we will be able to ensure equity for members of marginalized subgroups.
