Funding for Indiana’s 3E grant is allocated as part of the state’s federal Elementary and Secondary Emergency Relief III plan.

The grant focuses on increasing the number of students experiencing work-based learning and earning high-value credentials while in high school, such as the Indiana College Core, an associate degree, or a career and technical education industry certificate.

“Throughout students’ 13 years in K-12, we must do everything possible to ensure students are empowered to develop the knowledge and skills needed to pursue their purpose, whether that leads to employment, enrollment, or enlistment leading to service,” said Dr. Katie Jenner, Indiana Secretary of Education. “In order to do this, in elementary and middle school we must make sure students can read, are immersed in STEM, and are provided opportunities to explore and engage in a variety of careers. Then empowered by these foundational skills, students must have access to earn postsecondary credentials of value and complete high-quality work-based learning while in high school.”

A full list of school districts and partners receiving the grant to implement in the 2022-2023 school year can be found here.
