IFT Projects Embraced by District LCAPs I T ' S T H E B E S T of all outcomes: Several educator projects funded by CTA's Institute for Teaching (IFT) have been incorporated into their dis- tricts' 2018–19 Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). Fontana Unified School District's LCAP is helping fund and expand the dance program started by A.B. Miller High School dance teacher Nicole Robinson. Robinson received three grants from IFT totaling $45,000; today her school offers four levels of dance, and 175 students take the classes five days a week. She also started Dance Collaborative, which supports weekly classes for 600 K–5 students and funds professional develop- ment for teachers. "[That] is exactly what we wanted; that's exactly why we did it," said Robinson of the LCAP news. In addition, two-time IFT grantee Bill Shively's program, River Jim's Education Adventure, at Willows Intermediate School has been included in the Willows Unified 2018–19 LCAP, which will help defray pro- gram costs. Both outcomes show that IFT grants — funded by CTA members' voluntary dues contributions — can lead to sustainable programs funded by tax dollars to benefit all students.
