The Flagler County Education Foundation empowers teachers by rewarding creative innovative projects through competitively awarded grants each year. These projects enrich a student’s educational experience. Teachers are encouraged to apply in order to advance STEAM initiatives at their respective school, with the goal to enhance the districts “Classroom to Careers” focus area.
Teacher grants will be awarded in two areas of focus; projects that increase interest in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) and projects that increase a teacher’s knowledge and skills.
If you are a Flagler School public teacher and interested in applying for a grant please Apply Here.
Funding spent on education has been cut year-after-year across the U.S., and this program gives teachers a extra incentive to create learning projects that otherwise may never occur. Help support our efforts today.
