Matching Grants to Enhance Culturally Responsive, Student-Centered Flexible Learning
BetterLesson is sponsoring a matching grant program to provide 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 to be awarded. 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 create student-centered, flexible teaching and learning in remote or hybrid environments, and/or support teachers to integrate culturally responsive, sustainable practices and social–emotional learning as part of their regular instruction.
