RIVERDALE, N.Y., (PRWEB) February 24, 2014
As part of its continued development and support of effective teachers and school leaders, Manhattan College is partnering with the Mount Vernon School District to implement its Strengthening Teacher and Leader Effectiveness (STLE) Grant Program. The Mount Vernon School District received an STLE grant of more than $1 million late last year in conjunction with New York State’s round two approval of STLE and the network of Teacher Resource and Computer Training Centers (Teacher Centers).
The College’s School Building Leadership (SBL) graduate program in the School of Education and Health will provide professional development services to the teachers and leaders of the Mount Vernon School District.
Manhattan College’s workshops and courses offer teachers and leaders the opportunity to take graduate-level courses. Students participate in leadership courses, work collaboratively with colleagues, and gain additional guidance and support for teaching high-need students and students with disabilities.
