Eau Claire school district is getting over $60,000 in federal funding to pay for staff development.
The Eau Claire school district is getting over $60,000 in federal funding to pay for staff development and instructional support, Superintendent Ann Shell reported this week. That news came at this week’s school board workshop session. Shell said administrators reported on activities and programs throughout the district this fall. She reported that the district is getting just over $62,600 in funds from a Title II grant. The money in question comes from the federal government via the Michigan Department of Education. She reported that two district staff members have received awards from Honor Credit Union. Teacher Allyson Rigler received $100 to spend on material for her class while administrator T. I. Ferry received “swag” items to give away to students.
The funds are earmarked for teacher instruction and leader support, including professional learning and training, she said. For example, the money will allow teachers to have more professional development opportunities in the district through videos and online programs without having to travel to outside conferences.
