Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to provide support to the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching’s continuing effort to increase the number of National Board Certified Teachers from tobacco dependent and/or economically distressed counties in North Carolina in high need curriculum areas. The program is expected to support 200 teachers from Tier 1 counties in North Carolina as they pursue and earn certification. Teachers that achieve certification often stay in teaching longer, are more effective in their profession, and tend to remain in their home districts. Golden LEAF funds will be used for costs related to teacher participation.
