Inclusion across the Nation of Communities of Learners of Underrepresented Discoverers in Engineering and Science

NSF INCLUDES is a comprehensive, national initiative to enhance U.S. leadership in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) discovery and innovation, focused on NSF’s commitment to ensuring accessibility and inclusivity in STEM fields, as communicated in the NSF Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years (FY) 2022 - 2026. The vision of NSF INCLUDES is to catalyze the STEM enterprise to work collaboratively for inclusive change, resulting in a STEM workforce that reflects the diversity of the Nation’s population. More specifically, NSF INCLUDES seeks to motivate and accelerate collaborative infrastructure building to advance equity and sustain systemic change to broaden participation in STEM fields at scale. Significant advancement in the inclusion of groups that have historically been excluded from or underserved in STEM will result in a new generation of STEM talent and leadership to secure the Nation’s future and long-term economic competitiveness.

Institute of Education Sciences (IES): National Center for Special Education Research (NCSER): Special Education Research Assistance Listing Number (ALN) 84.324A Synopsis 2

Under this competition, NCSER encourages a broad range of research, including studies that may have more than one research focus (such as reading and behavior) and may focus broadly on students with disabilities or on a particular disability (such as autism spectrum disorders). The range of research supported through this program includes, but is not limited to, programs to improve child development and school readiness; academic and/or behavioral interventions; instructional practices and/or professional development programs for teachers and other school-based personnel; strategies for improving the family support and engagement critical to the success of students with disabilities; policies and systems-level interventions and programs to address school finance, school-community collaborations, or school structures that affect educational progress for students with disabilities; transition from secondary school to postsecondary education, career, and/or independent living; as well as access to, persistence in, and completion of postsecondary education.

Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE): School Choice & Improvement Programs (SCIP): Promise Neighborhoods (PN) Program, Assistance Listing Number 84.215N
The PN program is authorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA). The purpose of the PN program is to significantly improve the academic and developmental outcomes of children and youth living in the most distressed communities of the United States, including ensuring school readiness, high school graduation, and access to a community-based continuum of high-quality services. The program serves neighborhoods with high concentrations of individuals with low incomes; multiple signs of distress, which may include high rates of poverty, childhood obesity, academic challenges, and juvenile delinquency, adjudication, or incarceration; adverse childhood experiences (ACEs); and schools implementing comprehensive support and improvement activities or targeted support and improvement activities under section 1111(d) of the ESEA. All strategies in the continuum of solutions must be accessible to children with disabilities and English learners.

Office of Elementary and Secondary Education( OESE): Full-Service Community Schools (FSCS) program, Assistance Listing Number 84.215J

The Full-Service Community Schools (FSCS) program provides support for the planning, implementation, and operation of full-service community schools that improve the

coordination, integration, accessibility, and effectiveness of services for children and families, particularly for children attending high-poverty schools and rural schools.

Full-service community schools are defined by four evidence-based pillars:

  1. Integrated supports (social and emotional learning, access to health and nutrition services).
  2. Expanded and enriched learning time (after-school enrichment and summer school).
  3. Active family and community engagement.
  4. Collaborative leadership and practices to support high-quality teaching.

Various approaches and their associated funding levels are defined by the Absolute Priority which a project addresses.

Advanced Education Research & Development Fund: Assessment for Good

Assessment for Good (AFG), under the Advanced Education Research and Development Fund (AERDF), is an inclusive and highly collaborative research and development program focused on producing effective solutions that result in a relevant, responsive, and accessible system of asset-generative formative assessment that educators, caregivers, or learners themselves can leverage across academic, social, and emotional domains.

Through a series of investments, Assessment for Good hopes to see the following outcomes for Black and Latinx learners aged 8–13:
 

  • the reduction of negative or segregated learning experiences,

  • more informed caregiver and educator decision-making, and

  • improved learning environments that support the academic goals and social and emotional wellbeing of learners and educators.
     

In this cycle, AFG will concentrate its efforts on how formative assessment is utilized to promote greater discovery and relevant learning. This includes the creation of new assessment instruments, assessment platforms, research studies that explore the use of current formative assessment tools in school districts, and research studies that document the readiness of school districts to engage with R&D prototypes.

Policies for Action

The racial wealth gap is a direct result of structural racism in America and is a root cause of other disparities in health, well-being, and survival. Any systematic approach to eliminating the racial wealth gap requires transformative policies focused on bolstering long-term family and community income streams and building and sustaining generational family and community wealth in communities of color. Policies for Action has issued a call for proposals (P4A) to build the evidence base on how national, state, local, tribal, or private-sector policies can reduce large and growing levels of racial inequality in wealth and significantly improve the financial well-being and economic security of families and communities who have been systematically marginalized. We are particularly interested in research that explores the impact or potential impact of policies or policy proposals that could close the racial wealth gap for families and communities who have been negatively affected by structural racism.
