Easy to apply valuable opportunity for educators in your area!


What is it? 

Regional Mini-grants in the amount of $1,000 are being offered by the MAACE Board to provide funds for educators to fund daylong professional development workshops within a region, i.e. SW, NW, NE, and SE regions.  The Board is offering these grants because of comments by ABE teachers who feel that they don't often have opportunities to get together with their colleagues just to share ideas, best practices, or to talk about their concerns.

What's Required? 

The major requirement is that the proposal must bring educators together to focus on an inservice interest or educational need.  Some suggestions from the survey at Fall 2002 Conference include:
