York County Alliance for Learning awards Innovation Grants to educators

The York County Alliance for Learning recently awarded $8,000 to 11 educators through its Innovation Grants program, according to a news release.

Those applying for the grants were required to partner with a York County business or organization to develop an innovative project that supports YCAL’s mission: facilitating the development of a high quality, relevant workforce through career awareness, the release says.

Here’s a look at the recipients and their projects:

The grants were awarded at the Career Education and Work Standards Symposium, which was attended by 130 educators on Tuesday at Red Lion Area Senior High School, the release says. Sessions at the event helped provide educators with lesson plans they could adapt for their grade level, incorporating Career Education and Work Standards, Pennsylvania’s academic standards and various career-focused topics.

  1. Not a single dime to a York city School. I wonder if York City schools were even offered an opportunity to participate. I would imagine the word is out that our School district is on it’s way to being privatized and funds are being funneled away from the city.

      Hi, James – I checked the YCAL website to see if there was more info about the program, and it says the grant application was open to York County educators from YCAL member schools/districts. York City is on the list of member schools, so it would seem the program was open to them. Here’s a link, if you want to read more:
