This AFT program offers financial support to teachers interested in becoming more involved with learning standards and their implementation.

If you're a teacher who wants to become more involved in working with learning standards and their implementation in your school or district, this union-sponsored program may be the perfect opportunity for you.

The AFT's "Teachers Leading on Standards" grant program provides financial resources to help members complete standards-related projects that they believe will have a meaningful, positive impact on the education environment.

Do you want to critique standards and the research behind them? How about offer feedback on the implementation of standards in your community? Or do you want to write new standards in a particular grade or subject? Learn more about the types of work that may be funded here.

Don't pass up the chance to put your ideas into action! Register online to view supporting documents and to apply for the grant. Applications must be submitted by September 30, 2014.
