  • Encourage improved instruction in mathematics, science, foreign languages, and other subjects.
  • Serve underserved populations, including disadvantaged, non-reading, and limited English proficient populations and individuals with disabilities. Star Schools grants are made to eligible telecommunications partnerships, to enable such partnerships to:

    • develop and acquire educational and instructional programming; and
    • obtain technical assistance for the use of such facilities and instructional programming.
