The Clover Park School District recently was awarded a $150,000 Educators for the 21st Century Washington Student Achievement Council grant.

The competitive grant program, formerly known as the Washington Higher Education Improving Teacher Quality grant program, provides partnership grants for professional development projects serving K-12 educators.

Teachers from Beachwood, Clarkmoor, Evergreen, Greenwood, Idlewild, Lake Louise and Oakbrook elementary schools, Hudtloff and Mann middle schools and Harrison Preparatory School will participate in the professional development. The school district is partnering with Pacific Lutheran University to facilitate the development.

Teachers will learn how to improve students’ understanding of fractions, ratios and proportions through workshops, coaching sessions and use of effective instructional materials.
