Rep. Jonathan Fritz (R-Susquehanna/Wayne) announced Wayne Highlands (Wayne County) and Montrose (Susquehanna County) school districts were awarded state grants, which will help expand both classroom instruction skills for teachers and exposure to agriculture education.
Montrose School District received a $25,000 Teacher in the Workplace grant through the Pennsylvania Department of Education enabling teachers to visit local employers and learn the skills and industry trends to enhance their classroom instruction, student learning and career readiness. While Wayne Highlands School District received $7,500 from the PA Ag and Youth grant program to establish a mobile agriculture science lab.
"It is always important that our children are prepared with the essential skills to flourish in the working world as well as have the opportunity to learn more about how farming and agriculture are vital in our everyday lives," said Fritz. "I am happy to see that these schools in our community are able to benefit from these state funds."
The Pennsylvania Ag & Youth Grant Program provides direct and matching grants to help fund eligible projects, programs and equipment purchases conducted or made by organizations composed mainly of youth and organized to promote development in agriculture, community leadership, vocational training and peer fellowship.
The Teacher in the Workplace (TIW) program provides the opportunity for eligible organizations in partnership with their Local Workforce Development Board to develop and/or implement TIW programs that connect the classroom to the workplace for K-12 educators in Pennsylvania.
