The Blended Learning Grant Program (BLGP) is a four-year process to design, launch, and scale a high-quality blended learning system. The BLGP has been approved by the Commission on School Finance and established by House Bill 3.
Blended Learning is an instructional model that combines face to face instruction with online learning in order to assist teachers to differentiate instruction for all students. The BLGP offers options for district/ charter participation either in math (through Math in Innovation Zones) or in other subjects through the non-math blended learning pilots.
This fall, TEA will award up to 25 planning grants of up to $125,000 to districts and charters for Math Innovation Zones (MIZ) and non-math blended learning pilots. TEA will select up to 10 districts/ charters to join MIZ as non-granted participants in the program as well. Upon evaluation of the BLGP Strategic Plans in the spring of 2020, all granted and non-granted participants are eligible for execution grants of up to $100,000.
Interested districts can find the grant application through the TEA Grant Opportunities Page.
