 AU Project Submissions for Contributions to student learning

 August 11, 2014 thru February 6, 2015

 BTU Professionals interested in submitting Achievement Unit (AU) projects for Contributions to student learning for the SY2014-2015 should do so by February 6th. In order to qualify for AUs, proposals must be received by the JGP for pre-approval prior to the deadline above.  All proposals must be submitted no later than 4 weeks prior to the project start date to avoid delay of implementation and allow time for review, feedback and resubmission opportunities. Remember, implementation of AU projects are contingent upon JGP approval.

All projects must be implemented and completed by May 1, 2015.


AUs for Contributions to student learning are awarded after implementation and successful completion of all requirements.


If you are interested in developing an AU project for the current school year, please visit City Schools Inside at for further details.


Please contact the Joint Governing Panel (JGP) at if you have any questions or have submitted a proposal for the SY2014-15.
