Pittsburgh Public Schools officials will seek $1.53 million in grant funding for its Empowering Effective Teachers plan.

The money will supplement a $40 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation dedicated to improving teacher recruitment and training.

Officials will submit the grant applications to the Fund for Excellence, a pool of money from local foundations used for city school initiatives.

The district proposes to use the grants for initiatives including a summer teacher academy and designing a new teacher evaluation system and recruitment program.

The district has planned a workshop April 15-17 where as many as 20 teachers and two support staff members will work on components of the Empowering Effective Teachers plan.

The board is scheduled to vote on both proposals March 24.
