Latin Grammar School was the only charter school in the state to receive two competitive grants from Georgia Governor’s Office!
The first award is in the amount of a $10,000 grant to support activities directly related to the Innovation Fund Accelerator participation. Upon successful completion of the program, participating schools will be eligible to apply for an additional grant of up to $45,000 to pilot the innovative programs developed. Latin Grammar School's proposed project is entitled Teachers Are Brain Surgeons and seeks to develop a program that delivers personalized professional development designed to maximize each teacher’s potential and positively impact students’ learning experiences.
The second grant is the Early Language and Literacy Mini-Grant Program, a collaborative effort between the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement and the Sandra Dunagan Deal Center for Early Language and Literacy at Georgia College. This grant provides Latin Grammar School with $20,000 to implement Building Bridges to Reading: The PATT (Parents are Teachers Too) Project. Through Building Bridges to Reading, schools in the East Point Community will arm parents with resources to build their children’s literacy skills at home. The program will target the parents of kindergarten through third grade students who are performing below grade level.
We are excited to use these funds to positively impact our scholars!
