Every Student Succeeds Act Funding Opportunities

There is historic new federal funding available for environmental education through the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The new grant program under Title IV, Part A, Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants will help states, districts, and schools provide students with a more well-rounded education. It focuses on safe and healthy students, how technology can be integrated into schools to improve teaching and learning, as well as emphasizing a variety of disciplines that provide a well-rounded education — including environmental education.

Professional Development for Teachers

ANROE coordinates with partners to offer professional development opportunities to help educators develop and refine their knowledge of natural resource & environmental literacy, and skills in environmental education principles and teaching techniques. Educators can use these environmental education and service-learning techniques to meet State Standards, while keeping students excited about learning, thus lowering drop-out rates. In addition to the types of workshops described below, there are sometimes special topics workshops.
