Three North Carolina school systems awarded funding to improve teacher effectiveness

Catawba County is one of three North Carolina school systems awarded grants by the Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI) to address teacher needs.

Dr. Carol Moore and her Catawba County team were awarded $4,500 for their STEM-shadowing program, in which local teachers learn from STEM professionals and develop curricula specific to their schools. These curricula would be based around meeting local workforce needs.

IEI reviewed 32 applications from across North Carolina and selected winners based on feasibility, collaboration, budget and impact on the state.

Greene County schools received $10,000 for a program to better connect teachers and Latino families. Lee County schools were awarded $3,000 for a mentoring program for new teachers.
