The Timberlane Regional School District is proud to announce it has been awarded a competitive grant under ESSA Title IV, Part A, Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE).
In March 2018, the New Hampshire Department of Education presented a one-million dollar competitive grant opportunity to school districts throughout the state of New Hampshire. The grant and funding guidelines under Title IV-A required grant writers to craft proposals that sustain evidence-based practices that support personalized educational experiences, student wellness, and effective uses of technology.
District administrator and Grants Project Manager, Mrs. Christi Michaud, engaged a team of district and school level administrators to carefully prepare the $92,000 project application that was recently awarded to serve PreK-12 students of the Timberlane Regional School District in the 2018-2019 school year.
Project activities include NGSx Science training for Timberlane educators, afterschool Science camps and materials for elementary students, an adventure ropes course, and consulting services to assist the district in developing a district-wide Systems of Care. All activities are intended to build connections between social, emotional, academic learning and growth, and physical fitness.
“It was reported by the NH Department of Education that over 4 million dollars of grant proposals were submitted. We are extremely proud to be a recipient of those moneys and look forward to the implementation of this grant award,” says Mrs. Christi Michaud.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Earl Metzler adds, “We are most appreciative of the work involved to secure this grant by Mrs. Michaud and the Timberlane team. Their efforts to seek additional revenue sources that enhance our programs and offerings for our students are commendable.”
