Posted on 08/04/2021

The Douglas County Education Foundation (DCEF) announced 65 Classroom Impact Grants to Douglas County School System (DCSS) teachers totaling $44,206.87 on July 30. 

“On behalf of the DCEF, we send a special thank you to the community volunteer reviewers for assisting with this process.  According to Award Spring, there were 99 grant applications submitted,” said Angelia O’Neal, DCEF’s Executive Director. “Although the foundation would love to fund all the wonderful project grants, we are excited to be able to fund 65 Classroom Impact Grants totaling $44,206.87.”

The Grants are provided by the Foundation to promote creative and innovative ideas inside and outside the classroom that directly impact student learning. Grants often fund programs, projects, equipment and enrichment opportunities that would not be available through state funds alone.

To receive a Grant, teachers, media specialists, counselors, principals and assistant principals throughout the Douglas County School System submit applications, and Grants are awarded on a competitive basis to the top applicants. 

Over the last 15 years, more than $217,000 have been awarded in Classroom Impact Grants to serve thousands of students at all grade levels throughout DCSS.
