Joplin Schools Foundation announces grant opportunities for Joplin Schools' staff

Joplin Schools Foundation

Joplin Schools Foundation is excited to announce a new Excellence in Education grant program for Joplin Schools' staff.

Excellence In Education Grants are awarded to projects that enhance the education of Joplin School District students by encouraging and recognizing new educational approaches and concepts that are not currently funded by the district.

Any Joplin Schools' educator may apply for an Excellence In Education Grant. Grants may be implemented district-wide by individual schools, school departments, teachers, counselors, librarians, nurses, and other district educators. Collaboration among grade levels, subject areas, disciplines, and schools is encouraged and teachers may apply as a group.

Grant requests may not exceed $2,000 and must be for projects or programs for which no other school district or supporting group funds are available.

Three grants will be awarded yearly for the following: K-5, 6-8 and 9-12 with a limit of one per level.

Priority will be given to projects and programs that:

- Promote innovative and creative teaching and learning
- Demonstrate collaboration among grade levels, subjects or disciplines, and schools
- Have not been previously funded for a teacher at the same school
- Have a substantial and demonstrable impact on students, measured either by breadth (the number of students participating or benefitting) or by depth (significant, life changing results)

Examples of projects, programs, and equipment:
