Work-Based Learning Grants
The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development has announced the 29 recipients of the Work-Based Learning Grant. In total, the department awarded more than $710,000 to school districts that have designed programs to promote career skills and readiness among Tennessee students. No Lakeway community received an award. The grants help improve the career readiness of Tennessee students and develop a strong workforce of tomorrow. “Many communities and school districts across Tennessee have stepped forward with strong programs that will help students develop career skills" said Commissioner Bob Rolfe. "I’m encouraged by the continued efforts to ensure Tennessee is the most aligned state in the country when it comes to education and workforce development.” The grants will assist the development or expansion of work-based learning programs that promote career awareness and student readiness in grades K-12. Work-Based Learning is an education strategy that provides students with experiences to learn and develop career and job skills. The department is accepting applications for the second round of Grants. Applicants are eligible for up to $25,000 with a local match requirement based on each community’s economic status. Communities and school districts interested in the grant program must submit applications by January 31, at the department's website.
