Grant Resources for Schools and Teachers

Converse School Awarded Two Incentive Grants

Converse School has been chosen as a recipient of two Incentive Grants in the amount of $4000.00 and $2000.00, respectively, by Red River Partners at Work to aid the school in further developing Schools-to-Work objectives.  The grants were solicited on a competitive basis in a ten-parish area and are aimed at producing change in certain areas including alternative scheduling, career exploration, and school-based enterprises.
The two grants were written by CHS English instructor Shirley Rivers in the hopes of integrating solid school-to-work programs into the school’s already successful block scheduling. The school currently operates a “Shirt Shop” as a school-based enterprise. The $4000.00 Incentive Grant will help to expand the shirt shop by purchasing needed supplies and equipment. Additionally, the $2000.00 grant will enhance career exploration activities for middle school students at CHS.

8G Statewide Distributive Learning Network -Louisiana Virtual Classroom Pilot Project for Web-based Course Development Grant Awarded to Martha Knippers and Catherine Rankin.  The Many High teachers are two of only thirteen Louisiana teachers chosen for the grant.  The courses listed below will be available to students in the recipient's district .  Based on 20 students per online course, 40 Sabine students will have an option to participate in the classes.  Catherine Rankin is presently conducting the first Louisiana asynchronous online (Computer Science I) course to five Sabine schools.  She is a member of the State Steering Committee that is developing distance learning standards. Her knowledge and experience contributed to the state's development of the grant.  The recipients of the grant will work toward a distance learning certification offered by UCLA.  Ms. Rankin completes the four course certification this semester.

Catherine and Martha are each experienced and innovative in application of a variety of technologies in their classrooms.  Ms. Knippers developed and conducted workshops for implementing MS Excel spreadsheet grade book.  She is also working on a lesson plan database.
