Welcome to the Flint Community Schools
Teaching American History Grant Program Website!                         

The Teaching American History Grant Program, administered by the Social Studies Department of the Flint Community Schools and funded by the U.S. Department of Education, was a professional development program for U.S. History teachers from the Flint Community Schools, Bendle Public Schools, and Mt. Morris Consolidated School District. The aim of the program was to raise student achievement by improving teachers’ knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of traditional American history. Although the grant concluded in the summer of 2010, we hope you enjoy the remaing resource - this website.
