Learning Forward Affiliate Grant

The Learning Forward Foundation is making available one grant opportunity of up to $2,000 for one year to assist a Learning Forward affiliate needing to rebuild, reorganize, or generate a stronger organization. The grant will honor Dale Hair’s legacy of work with the affiliates and her passion for supporting the successful work of the affiliates.

Applicants must be officially recognized Learning Forward Affiliate organizations.

Our experience with the grant is that it has accelerated our work throughout the state to better understand the Standards of Professional Learning, and advocate for their support and implementation.

— Chad Dumas, Learning Forward Foundation Affiliate Grant, 2016

As a recipient of the Learning Forward’s The Principal as a Leader of Professional Learning scholarship and through my work sessions with the foundation’s representatives and my executive coach, I understood the critical importance of ongoing, focused professional learning opportunities. My action plan provided my teachers with differentiated, connected, professional learning opportunities that have further developed teachers’ skills and greatly impacted student learning. The year following our work with Learning Forward, our school earned an award from our district as a reward school based upon the improved growth and achievement of our students. I credit our focused, driven efforts to grow our teachers through differentiated professional learning as a major factor in our receiving this award.
