Our purpose is to promote quality teaching and enhanced learning in Shelby County Schools. These grants reward educators for developing innovative and useful program ideas with a goal to provide our students with the best education possible.
*Any teacher or staff member of the Shelby County School district may apply for the grant.
*Proposals may include requests for equipment, consultants, printing/prepared materials or other project costs needed to implement a program for the classroom, a department, or an area of service. The need for equipment must be directly related to objectives of the project.
*Each grant must have a title and a detailed budget must be provided.
*If a teacher transfers to another campus or resigns from the district, the grant award will be returned to the Foundation or the campus principal may select another teacher to carry out the project on the original campus.
*Each grant (either individual or group) may be applied for up to $1,000. The number of grants awarded per person participating either as an individual or in a group, will be no more than two; and total money awarded cannot exceed $1,000 per teacher. There is no limit to the number of applications an individual may submit.
*An impartial panel of readers will review all applications and select recipients based on a scoring rubric. Adherence to grant specifications, as well as spelling and grammar, will be considered. Recipients will be expected to share results of funded programs with the school system, school faculties and at professional meetings, if requested. A program evaluation will be required at the end of the project.
