BetterLesson Sponsors $1 Million Matching Grant Program for Professional Development


CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- To provide expanded access to K-12 schools and districts with virtual professional learning services to improve teaching and learning in remote and hybrid environments and to promote social justice, BetterLesson is sponsoring a matching grant program. Public and private K-12 schools, districts and education service agencies are invited to submit their proposals between today and Friday, September 4, 2020.

"Teachers and school leaders are facing intense challenges right now. And if we want success for all students, educators need to be meaningfully, continuously supported; now more than ever," said Erin Osborn co-founder and COO of BetterLesson. "We've seen over the past few months how much BetterLesson's virtual Professional Learning can help districts and schools improve the use of powerful distance learning strategies, as well as help educators take real steps toward advancing social justice. The grant program felt like a concrete way to increase access to this support and reach as many educators as possible."

The program provides public and private K-12 schools, districts and education service agencies in the United States with virtual professional learning services to improve teaching and learning in remote environments and integrate practices that advance social justice as part of regular classroom instruction.    

The grant will be funded up to $1 million, with a total of up to 30 grants being awarded. Grants can range from $30,000 to $150,000. For awarded grants, BetterLesson will match the amount the district is investing with an equal amount of in-kind products and services.

Grant proposals should be aimed at increasing the capacity of schools and districts to a) create student-centered, flexible teaching and learning in remote or hybrid environments and/or b) support teachers to integrate culturally responsive and sustaining practices and social-emotional learning (SEL) as part of their regular instruction. The most competitive proposals will show attention to PD considerations for both teachers and leaders.

BetterLesson provides one-to-one and one-to-many student-centered professional learning experiences for educators across a wide range of domains. Since its inception by educators more than a decade ago, BetterLesson has reimagined in-person, virtual and hybrid professional development for educators.
