Frequently Asked Questions

This section is designed to provide an overview of how to apply to CEEAS to participate in the Blended Learning Initiative.

Who can apply?

The Lead Agency must be a state (or in California, a county) agency with jurisdiction over youth who have been adjudicated delinquent and are placed in long-term, secure care.

If the Lead Agency runs the schools inside of its long-term secure care facilities, then it does not need an Education Partner as a part of its application.  If the Lead Agency does not run the schools inside of its facilities, then the agency/entities that do run the schools (state or county offices of education, local school districts, private providers) must complete the appropriate sections of the Phase 1 and Phase 2 Applications as the Education Partner.

Do all the facilities in a state have to participate in order for a state juvenile justice agency to apply?

No.  The Lead Agency must be the state juvenile justice agency.  The Lead Agency can decide which sites it would like to participate in the Blended Learning Initiative.  Each site must sign on to the Phase 1 and Phase 2 Applications, by completing the appropriate portions of the Applications and Attachments.

CEEAS believes the Blended Learning Initiative will be most effective if interested state juvenile justice agencies select 2-4 sites to participate as a cohort.  But each state juvenile justice agency should decide how many sites to include in its application.

How does an agency apply to participate in the Blended Learning Initiative?

All application materials get submitted electronically to CEEAS.

  1. Phase 1 Applications are completed online.  They are due February 7, 2014.
  2. Phase 2 Applications are due on February 21.  CEEAS will send an email back to the Lead Agency after it has reviewed its Phase 1 Application.  Phase 2 Application materials will be sent to the Lead Agencies by CEEAS.  Applications will include:
  • Application Narrative Section
  • Application Technical Section
  • Required Attachments
  • Note that these forms require the signature of the Agency Director, site-level leadership, and if applicable, leadership of Education Partner organizations.

To begin the application process, submit your Phase 1 Application online to CEEAS by 5:00 pm EST on February 7, 2014.  Applications received after February 7 will not be considered.
