"Excellence in Educational Support"

NGRESA Awarded Grants for Endorsements and GaTAPP

NGRESA has been awarded three grants totaling $732,845 dollars from the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) for Teacher and Leader Support and Development over the next two years.  The GaDOE Teacher and Leader Support and Development Grants will support Georgia educator recruitment initiatives for endorsements and GaTAPP across the state.  At NGRESA, the grants will fund for eligible candidates the cost of tuition for offered endorsements, as well as book vouchers.  For GaTAPP, partial tuition scholarships will be funded for eligible candidates. 

Grants awarded include the Georgia Teacher Endorsement Grant, the Georgia Teacher Leader Endorsement Grant, and the GaTAPP Grant.   

Eligible endorsements offered for FY23 include the following: Coaching Endorsement, Dyslexia Endorsement, ESOL Endorsement, Gifted Endorsement, Online Teaching Endorsement, and Reading Endorsement.  Candidates committed to completing these endorsements to enhance their teaching expertise are encouraged to register.  Priority enrollment and grant awards will be given to applicants from NGRESA partner districts: Cherokee, Gilmer, Murray, Pickens, and Whitfield. Those outside NGRESA should check with their RESA for availability of funds.  For registration information, please visit our website: https://www.ngresa.org/index.php/professional-learning/endorsements

Enrollment for NGRESA GaTAPP is on-going, and those potential candidates hired by partner districts who need to complete this program should apply.  Please visit our website for more information: https://www.ngresa.org/index.php/professional-learning/gatapp
