One way the Bartlett Education Foundation accomplishes its mission is through our Grant Program, available to all teachers and administrators in Bartlett City Schools each year. These grants are used to carry out innovative projects that enrich the standard curriculum, in ways that directly affect students’ day-to-day classroom experiences as well as improve the education system as a whole.
The Grant Program has grown year over year awarding nearly $450,000 in grants to the Bartlett area public schools since 1998. Grants are each school year, focusing on the enhancement of classroom experiences that directly involve students, mostly centered on hands-on learning and classroom enhancements. The number of students served by the grant is also a criteria for the selection of a successful grant. Grant money is provided through various fundraising activities and corporate donations.
Our grant application process is scheduled to open soon so please check back (a link will be posted here). Grants will be awarded after school starts in August 2024.
