Support the teacher grant program, providing resources to classroom teachers

How has a teacher changed your life?

Do you remember that special teacher in your life? The one (or if you were lucky, more than one) who helped you unlock your potential that opened doors of opportunity for you?

Classroom teachers in the Center School District still do that for their students. However, in an era of reduced resources for education, it is difficult for teachers to find the funds they need to do the truly creative projects that have the potential to change the lives of their students.

That is where the Center Education Foundation helps with our teacher grant program. Teachers fill out a simple application describing what they need. To the extent that the Foundation is able to raise funds from the community, we are able to fund those grants. Over the past three years we have funded over $150,000 in grants for some 75 different teachers. These range from projects to enhance early childhood literacy to choice based arts programs to helping students of all ages participate in age-appropriate robotics programs.
