The William Carey University School of Education received a $90,000 grant to fund a 20-day Teacher Leadership Institute this summer at the Tradition campus in Biloxi.
The program, through a grant for teacher-quality improvement under Title II of No Child Left Behind, will take place in June. Twenty teachers from Coast school districts will attend.
To be considered for the grant, William Carey had to team up with a local education agency and submit a project to help teachers adopt the new College and Career Readiness Standards, also known as Common Core.
This will be William Carey's second year conducting the institute.
