Support & Intervention

Apply for an EARSS Grant

The four-year Expelled and At-Risk Student Services (EARSS) grant is intended to bolster academic and behavioral support for truant students and students who are at risk of school discipline. Eligible applicants frequently hire personnel for support so that students and their parents/guardians benefit from one-on-one intensive support that keeps struggling students engaged in their learning.

Letters of intent for the current funding opportunity will be accepted on an ongoing basis between now and the application deadline of Thursday, March 12. If possible, the letters are requested by Friday, Jan. 31, to help CDE recruit an adequate number of volunteers for the application review process.

Current and previously funded grantees are eligible to apply but some restrictions apply which are described in the Application overview section.

Eligible applicants include school districts, BOCES, alternative schools within a school district, charter schools, facility schools, and if working through agreements with a district to serve expelled students, non-public, non-parochial schools.

Application materials and additional information are available at the Request for Applications webpage.
