Fund, a part of Edthena's 10-year anniversary celebration, is a

size, to help implement the Edthena platform. Grants are awarded for
up to three years.
According to Edthena: "Districts can use the award-winning
Edthena video observation platform in a number of ways to support
high-impact teaching and help streamline feedback to teachers. The
platform enables feedback to teachers using video observations and
increased teacher-to-teacher collaboration. There is also the ability
to scale best practices across the district with secure video
libraries, to engage educators in flexible micro-credential-style
learning, and more."

round of applications will be reviewed September 30.
