Los Gatos Hispanic Serving Pathway Grant
Request for Proposals Open
5/27/22 – 7/8/22
The Los Gatos Hispanic Serving Pathway program is a sub-award project fully funded by the US Department of Education. The goal of the program is to expand college-going outreach and quality dual enrollment pre-calculus mathematics courses at participating high schools.
For a school to be eligible for the grant, the school’s student population must be at least 35% Hispanic and operating under USDA COVID -19 waiver, under the National School Lunch Program Seamless Summer Option (SSO), and within 60 miles of the University of Arizona main campus.
The FAMILIA team is proudly working with Pueblo High School, Catalina High School and Rincon High School for the first cohort of the Los Gatos program! As part of the program, the high schools will receive $5,000 per semester that can be used on expenses related to activities and materials that support college-going culture and support for teachers to become credentialed by the Higher Learning Commission to teach dual enrollment courses, specifically pre-calculus mathematics courses. By preparing Hispanic and minority students in pre-calculus, this project will increase the likelihood that students persist through STEM coursework in college and obtain a STEM degree.
