Classroom Grants Program

 

The Freeport Area School District Foundation has established the Classroom Grants Program to support innovative teaching and learning initiatives within the Freeport Area School District.  These grants are awarded to enable unique teaching strategies to become reality.  Classroom grants put funds directly into the District’s classrooms and often lead to subsequent enhancements of the school’s regular curriculum.

 

Teachers who wish to apply for a Classroom Grant should read and complete the Classroom Grant Application 2019-20.  Deadline to submit applications to the Foundation is October 31, 2019.

 

Anyone wishing to donate to the Classroom Grants Program, or any other FASD Foundation initiative, can contact Bobbi Jo Abbott, FASD Foundation Executive Director, at (724) 295-5143, ext. 1248 or email abbott@freeport.k12.pa.us.
