Grant Resources

I recently attend an amazing workshop given by Claire Ricci from Alamance Community College (ACC). ACC is the fastest growing adult literacy program in the state and has partnered with numerous agencies across their county. I have put her presentation on our website HERE.

One great partnership ACC has is with the United Way, from which ACC received an almost $40k grant! This grant allowed them to send instructors to the ABSPD Institute (hint, hint) as well as a host of other initiatives that have enabled them to serve their students better. One of the United Way's big focuses is education. Claire also provided information about the Lifelong Learning Grant from the State Library of NC.

Claire realizes that the professional development of faculty and staff impacts quality instruction in the classroom which impacts student attendance and retention. An investment in professional development pays dividends in improved student progress.
