2019-2020 CLASSROOM GRANTS

 

The Foundation’s Classroom Grant Program is an annual initiative through which district teachers and administrators apply for individual grants or larger collaborative grants in the arts, technology, and other areas.  It is the Foundation’s way of creating an effective grassroots incentive to encourage teachers to reach for excellence.  

These grants are all about giving students the skills they need to get 21st-century jobs and the analytic and creative capacity required to succeed in classrooms and life beyond graduation – as well as the incentive to keep them in school.  Grants have funded everything from puppet theatres, science labs, and 3-D printers to theatrical scrims for auditoriums, digital-imaging laptops, and field trips.
