Region 9 Education Cooperative: Curriculum for Indigenous CommunitiesDeadline: February 5, 2021
The Curriculum for Indigenous Communities program seeks to support a culturally and linguistically responsive education to all students in New Mexico to prepare them socially, emotionally, and academically for success in college, career, and life. The program will facilitate collaborative work between educational and community organizations, and Tribes to develop high quality professional development and/or language curriculum for Indigenous communities.
NMPED is calling for New Mexico educational and community organizations to partner with museums and historical societies that are dedicated to understanding and conveying multiple perspectives representative of the diverse history of the original peoples of New Mexico, including its sovereign Tribal communities. Participants must have experience working with the development of Indigenous curriculum, or in having experience of high quality professional development for K-12 teachers in alignment with the New Mexico Indian Education Act (see solicitation for details).
Activities under this grant must be completed by June 11, 2021. Such activities should include development of curriculum, activities or resources that are culturally and linguistically responsive; and/or creation of a plan for embedded high-quality professional development for culturally and linguistically responsive curriculum.
Amount: Up to $1,800,000 is available to make an undetermined number of awards; award amounts will be made based on the cost proposal and timeline submitted with the application.
Eligibility: New Mexico Higher Education Institutions (including Tribal colleges and universities), non-profits, Tribes, regional education cooperatives (RECs), and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) involved in cultural affairs.
