The Foundation supports the school system’s instructional program by awarding teacher classroom grants each year. The grants provide teachers with financial resources to purchase instructional items for use with their students. The funds are used to purchase classroom items such as calculators, technology equipment, digital scales, library books, frogs for science dissections, computer software and apps, and supplies for science and engineering labs. The teacher grants have proven to be a source of funds for teachers that allow them to provide unique and worthwhile experiences.
Although the Foundation awards $10,000 in grants each year, there are always requests that do not get funded due to limited funds. The more funds we generate, the more grants can be awarded!
