Grant AwardMarlboro County School District Partners with Insight Education Group to Implement Educator Effectiveness Grant from U.S. Department of Education. 
With funding from the grant, Marlboro County’s educators will be part of networked improvement communities with four states nationwide.

Bennettsville, SC October 17, 2017 — Marlboro County today announced that, in partnership with Insight Education Group, it has been awarded a Teacher and School Leader Incentive Program (TSL) Grant through the U.S. Department of Education. TSL funding will support Insight’s Empowering Educators to Excel (E3) program in the district, a private/public partnership which provides 47 schools across four states the opportunity to work together in a networked improvement community (NIC) context.

E3 will focus on the greatest school-related influencers on student achievement: the recruitment, development, and retention of teachers, teacher leaders, and principals. Educators will engage in a wide-range of wrap-around supports, including leadership academies, PLCs, and individual and peer coaching through a video-based observation and coaching platform.

The E3 program will support Marlboro County School District’s ongoing pledge to “Every Student, Every Day, What Ever It Takes”.

Marlboro County School District is one of five districts across four states partnering with Insight Education Group to implement this grant. The other four districts are Colonial School District (New Castle, DE), Gainesville Independent School District (Gainesville, TX), Marion County School District (Marion, SC), and Metropolitan School District of Decatur Township (Decatur, IN).

“A large percentage of school districts across the U.S. are comprised of 15 or fewer schools,”said Jason Stricker, CEO and co-founder of Insight Education Group. “Many of these school districts lack the resources and infrastructure of larger districts, but confront the same basic challenges. Through E3, these districts who share a growth mindset will be empowered to leverage technology to forge partnerships across state lines which will lead to improved educational outcomes for students across the country.”
