Glads Rise Up! LSGT Grant
In 2018, the Clarke County School District set aside grant funds to distribute to LSGTs to create innovative programs that build the capacity of schools and communities to support the achievement, success, and well-being of children in alignment of one or more of the District's focus areas of literacy, numeracy, and social-emotional development.
Grant Budget: $14,000
Clarke Central will be focusing on improving social-emotional development with their innovation. The proposed program is designed to help students with life after graduation through the use of experiential learning. The program will use the 5 social-emotional learning competencies to guide lessons and curriculum. Taking place at Classic City high for one day, students will receive lunch and breakfast for free. Students will partake in activities such as mock interviews, opening up a bank account, learning to file taxes, and learn about healthy spending habits. The program helps students with their academic growth, creates a learning environment in which students are the decision makers, and respects the individuality of each student.
