One of the Foundation’s most important goals is to foster ideas CPS educators have for driving innovation in the classroom. To that end, any district administrator or teacher may apply for a Foundation Grant to fund a qualified passion project, if the project’s intended purpose aligns with the Foundation’s funding priorities.
Grants-to-Teachers are awarded semi-annually: For information on Grant application deadlines and award announcements, please contact the Executive Director of the Claremore Public Schools Foundation or see below.
Grants are awarded on a competitive basis for materials, supplies and projects not available through regular district funding. The CPSF Allocations Committee reviews requests and prioritizes them based on:
- need for the project
- number of students affected
- project goals and objectives
- reasonable budget
- means of assessment
Any teacher or administrator in the Claremore Public School District is encouraged to apply. Applications may be obtained from the CPSF office or you can download them below.
