Twenty-eight GCS Teachers Join Governor’s Teacher Network

Participants will receive specialized training
and $10,000 to support Race to the Top mission

"Twenty-eight GCS teachers are part of an elite network of educators from across the state who will be working to create professional development or instructional resources to benefit North Carolina schools.

These teachers have been selected to join the Governor’s Teacher Network, which includes 450 K-12 teachers who will support the state’s educational remodeling efforts. The program is funded through the North Carolina Race to the Top grant and will be used to support Home Base, a central information system that includes instructional materials.

This summer, participating teachers will take part in training related to the program and then begin developing projects designed to spread understanding and use of new resources and practices in their schools and districts. They will continue to receive support in the coming year from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, as well as $10,000 for their efforts.
