INDIANAPOLIS — Forty Indiana schools and school districts have been chosen to share $10 million in grants to reward excellent teachers.

The Indiana Department of Education says that it's recommending members the schools and districts to the State Budget Committee to receive Excellence in Performance for Teachers grants. The General Assembly established the grant program in 2011 to help schools recruit and retain good teachers.

The Perry Township school district in Indianapolis was selected for the largest amount, over $921,000. Also chosen for grants of $500,000 or more were the Fayette County Schools, the Greensburg Community Schools, the Noblesville Community Schools, the Mishawaka-based Penn-Harris-Madison School Corp., the North Montgomery Community Schools, and the Zionsville Community Schools.

Most grants are at least $100,000, but a few are less than that.
