Sanchez announces state grant for Abington School District

HARRISBURG, Jan. 6 – State Rep. Ben Sanchez, D-Montgomery, announced today Abington School District will benefit from a $25,000 grant awarded this week through the Teacher in the Workplace grants program.

The grant money will enable Abington teachers to visit local employers and learn the skills and industry trends that will enhance their classroom instruction, student learning, and career readiness.

“These grants build critical bridges between schools and in-demand professions,” Sanchez said. “This is a great program that connects teachers directly with employers. The teachers have the opportunity to learn industry skills trends to bring back to their classrooms to improve their students’ career readiness.”
