ELKHART — A $630,000 grant from the Indiana Department of Education will help Elkhart Community Schools bring new and talented teachers into classrooms, as well as provide support for those already in the district looking into a career in education, officials said.

District officials say that one of the top desired outcomes of this grant is to improve existing teacher and staff shortages. The rollout will not be solely focused on recruiting new teachers; it will also ensure teachers that are already within ECS schools have the opportunity to grow and enrich their roots.
