We are partnering with the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Education to create alternatives to suspensions and establish public schools as hubs for racial and community healing. The REACH Network will work across CA with public and charter schools, local education agencies, community-based organizations, and universities to reduce suspensions that disproportionately affect historically marginalized students in grades TK-12.
REACH grants will allow for school sites and districts to test out innovative models that promote positive relationships, healthy learning conditions, and center on evidence-based alternatives to punitive practices and policies in schools.
Pre-K through 12th grade public school sites, including public charter schools, are eligible to apply to join the network. Higher education partners, community-based organizations, and nonprofits are encouraged to apply, but must apply jointly with a school site, district, or county office of education to be considered eligible. Grant awardees will receive up to $25,000 each. Grant awardees will receive up to $25,000 each and will be notified in January 2024. Grants will be distributed on July 1, 2024.
