The Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable on Wednesday, October 24 awarded a major Teacher Impact Award to Dorsey High School’s Physical Education Department. The award will be used to purchase much needed sporting equipment for P.E. student’s use at the school. The equipment shortage is due to severe budgetary cutbacks in the LAUSD. The need to provide sporting equipment to insure robust P.E. programs at inner city high schools is even more critical given the documented rise in obesity and other health related issues among minority young persons and in inner cities communities. P.E. instructors, Dorsey principal Dr. Reginald Sample, PE instructors, and students took part in the presentation event.
The Teacher Impact Award was created to assist the thousands of teachers who are forced to pay out of their pocket for classroom materials, supplies, and projects. The Teacher Impact Awards will be given monthly. Wells Fargo Foundation is a major partner with the Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable’s Teacher Impact Award Program. Applications are now being accepted. The next Teacher Impact Awards will be made in November.
“We are deeply appreciative of this award, “said Dr. Sample, “It will be a tremendous boost to our P.E. Dept. program in supplying much needed equipment.”
“School budget cutbacks, and the elimination of vital school programs make it even more imperative that we assist teachers with funding to reimburse them for their classroom and project expenses,” says Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson, “The Teacher Impact Award Program aims to fill that chronic education need.”
