The Institute has established the Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships in Education Research (Research Partnership) grant program (CFDA 84.305H) with the intention of funding partnerships composed of research institutions and State or local education agencies. These partnerships are to identify an education issue with important implications for improving student achievement that is of high priority for the education agency, carry out initial data analyses regarding the education issue, and develop a plan for further research on the issue culminating in an application to one of the Institute's research grant programs. The ultimate goal of the partnerships is to conduct research that that has direct implications for improving programs, processes, practices or policies that will result in improved student outcomes. To ensure a full partnership, each organization involved in the partnership will provide at least one Principal Investigator (or Co-Principal Investigator) to the partnership and the Principal or Co-Principal Investigator from the education agency is to have decision-making authority regarding the issue to be examined.
