Through this grant, we receive funding ($23,000) for 12 professional development sessions, 5 sessions of “in-district” coaching support, and $1200 worth of sub pay for our participants. 

The following flyer contains more information. If you are interested in serving on this team, please reach out to your principal or Corey Marohn (cmarohn@mlhslancers.org). It would be great to have one representative from each of our LLS!
