K-16 Education collaborative
Shasta College submitted an application on April 29th for a competitive grant through the Office of Public School Construction in collaboration with North State Together. This grant program is the result of the 2021 Budget Act which allocated $250 Million to the Department of General Services and is being administered through the Foundation for California Community Colleges. The focus of the grant is to promote K-16 education collaboratives that create streamlined pathways from high school to postsecondary education and into the workforce. Using innovative and creative approaches, North State Together will increase outcomes through ingenuity and bold systems transformation.
On Tuesday, May 24th, Shasta College, as lead agency representing the North State California Economic Recovery Fund region, was announced as an awardee of the Regional K-16 Education Collaboratives Grant Program! North State Together, sponsored by the Shasta College Foundation, is named the convener and will be allocated this award to carry out the goals of the grant. This $18.13 Million award will enable North State Together to expand the scope of its collective impact work across our entire North State region, adding Lassen, Butte, Sierra, Plumas, and Glenn counties to its original 5-county network and strengthen partnerships with College of the Siskiyous, Butte-Glenn Community College District, Feather River College, California State University, Chico and University of California, Davis.
