ALBANY, Ga.-- Darton College has received an $18,000 grant to address the need for professional development for life sciences teachers. The federal grant, which was awarded to Darton by the State of Georgia, will last for one year and focus on improving teacher quality.

Expanding on the success of Darton¹s current Eisenhower-funded middle-grades science project, this grant will fund the recruitment of science and mathematics educators for seven days of intensive in-class professional development.

Darton will continue to support their training efforts after the grant period ends through web-based instructional units and a web-based discussion board. Each participant will receive six instructional units prepared by the project facilitators and each will gain increased personal knowledge in life sciences, mathematics, and technology as a result of the grant project.

For more information about the grant, please contact Dr. Robert Wynegar, chair of the Science and Math Division at Darton, at (229) 430-6830.
