Detroit Partnership Strengthened Detroit Public Schools supported 77% (10 out of 13) of this year’s invitational summer institute fellows with professional development scholarship funds. The scholarships were arranged by Dr. Ron Kar, Director of Curriculum for the school district and a writing project supporter for more than twenty years. The school district is also providing scholarships to support our Middle Schools Institute for Language Arts Teachers beginning on August 5, 2002. We will have news about that program in a couple of weeks.
We are now working with Ron Kar to develop a proposal to get new grant funds to support a New Teacher Initiative in Detroit. We will pass on news about that proposal in the fall.
