GPAEA is working with other AEAs of the EISC to provide school districts with access to efficient and effective science curriculum to maximize student-learning opportunities. The EISC is offering the Third Edition FOSS kit curriculum for implementation coordinated through the VAST Center.

GPAEA is offering a limited number of first year implementation grants that will provide the rental cost of one kit per teacher (approximately $175) up to $1050 limit per building for the first year of the building’s participation.  Applicants will be selected based on following factors: science proficiency data on Iowa Assessments, SINA/DINA and the district sustainability plan for FOSS kit curriculum.
