Nebraska's Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education

Improving Teacher Quality (ITQ) grant program

For the past seven years, the Coordinating Commission has awarded federally-funded Improving Teacher Quality (ITQ) grants to Nebraska's innovative leaders in education. Grants are not awarded to individuals, but to partnerships formed by local, high-need educational agencies and a Nebraska college or university. These partnerships design and produce professional development activities to improve the skills of teachers, paraprofessionals, and principals.

The Commission voted on 2016-2017 grant recipients at its Jan. 26, 2017 meeting. This is the last year that ITQ grants will be awarded.
