DTiR Assigned Time Grants

A portion of the Distinguished Teachers in Residence (DTiR) Program is committed to Assigned Time Grants (ATG). ATGs begin as proposals developed cooperatively with School of Education Faculty and participating Consortium districts, which are submitted each year for consideration of an Assigned Time Grant. 

A panel is convened of the DTiR Assigned Time Grant Committee along with school district Consortium representatives.  Some of the determining factors for selection are based upon:

  • Viability of the project
  • Match between units requested and depth of work proposed
  • Anticipated benefits to the district(s)
