Using donations wisely to enhance student learning is a key focus of the Fulton Public Schools Foundation. Classroom grants are a cornerstone program of foundation giving. Each year, teachers or principal can apply for grants of $500 to $1,000 for projects that bring innovation, expanded learning opportunities, and/or unique learning experiences to students.
These grants began in the 2007-08 school year after the Foundation board did surveys with teachers and administrators to determine the needs of the schools and what the budget wasn’t able to fund. Three areas emerged: 1) classroom grants 2) building grants 3) equipment. These areas have remained the focus of funding efforts and are reflected in the grants listed here.
Fulton Public Schools Foundation has provided significant funding for many projects in our district. The yearly grants provide teachers with a resource to explore new and innovative techniques in their pursuit to maximize student growth and success. It is clear from the support of the Foundation and its members that investing in our future through today’s students is a priority.
