GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A new program aims to raise student achievement at high-poverty schools in the Grand Rapids area.

Royal Oak-based Education Trust-Midwest announced Monday it’s launching a program to provide greater support and coaching to teachers and promote collaboration among principals and teachers.

The nonpartisan education research, information and advocacy organization’s Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning is based in western Michigan. It’s gotten funding from the Steelcase Foundation to help develop district and school leadership through the Kent Learning and Innovation Network.

The network is ramping up its team to prepare to start or deepen work next school year in at least four elementary schools in Grand Rapids Public Schools and Wyoming Public Schools. The program will expand to reach eight western Michigan schools over four years.
