The database uses public personnel data from the state Department of Education to create the first user-friendly tool of its kind for finding and comparing pay for Pennsylvania teachers and administrators.

The board of directors of Community College of Allegheny County announced on Thursday the creation of a grant program designed to "promote faculty innovation that increases student engagement," according to college officials.

The John Dziak Faculty Development and Engagement Fund -- named for a longtime assistant professor of biology of the college -- will provide annual grants of up to $500 for five faculty members to identify and test strategies in their classrooms that then can be shared with their colleagues.

Dziak presented CCAC with $20,000 toward the fund's endowment. College President Alex Johnson said he will add another $10,000 to the endowment.
