TWU Project Awarded $1.1 Million ‘No Child Left Behind’ Grant

9/17/04


DENTON — A Texas Woman’s University project aimed at alleviating the state’s critical teacher shortage has been awarded $1.1 million from the U.S. Department of Education.

Project Gateway is a five-year project to focus on training, placing and mentoring math, English as a Second Language and general classroom teachers with the Dallas Independent School District. The grant will provide scholarships to mid-career professionals who are seeking to enter the teaching field.

“Our goal is to certify 140 teachers through TWU’s Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program,” said Dr. Claudia Sanchez, TWU assistant professor of teacher education and director of the project. “This grant will help support Dallas ISD, the second largest school district in the state. We are extremely excited about Project Gateway and are proud to have received this award.”

The U.S. Department of Education awarded a total of 32 grants worth $18.3 million as part of the No Child Left Behind Act, an education reform law designed to change the culture of America’s schools by closing the achievement gap among groups of students.

For information on Project Gateway, contact Dr. Sanchez at (940) 898-2009.
