In January, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf and Secretary of Education Pedro Rivera announced that La Salle was one of three universities to receive federal funding under the Eligible Partnership Grant Program. More than $3 million was granted to La Salle, Shippensburg, and Temple universities through the Department of Education’s Bureau of School Leadership and Teacher Quality, which helps prepare school principals and supports student performance. La Salle’s Early Learning Principal Instructional
Coaching Program, the project selected for $1.27 million in funding, develops leaders that are committed to and focused on utilizing instructional coaching and professional learning communities to leverage change in learning environments for students in Pre-K through fourth grade.
“This grant, led by Greer Richardson, is emblematic of the University’s core educational values: a practical education, a focus on diverse learners, and a contribution to the common good,” said La Salle Provost Brian Goldstein, Ph.D.“Most importantly, the result of this grant will be higher educational attainment for Pennsylvania’s children.”
