The Bradley Cleveland Public Education has awarded $55,000 in grants to local teachers for the 2017-18 school year.
“We award these grants for projects which lead to measurable academic progress,” Voelz said. “These projects are very diverse, but they will all result in academic outcomes we can measure.”
Many of the grants awarded this year will fund projects which combine multiple academic disciplines. For example, a grant awarded to Mayfield Elementary involves both art and English, while a grant awarded to George R. Stuart Elementary and E.L. Ross Elementary will combine math and health.
Though the foundation has awarded many individual teacher grants in the past, most of this year’s proposals were for team grants.
The following grants were funded this year:
• Park View Elementary — “Chromebooks for Creativity,” awarded to Courtney Howell and Cassondra Bishop;
• Taylor Elementary — “Developing Our Future One Magniloquent Word at a Time,” awarded to Tara Snider and Nate Mathis;
Cross-school system Team Grant —
• Arnold Memorial Elementary and Michigan Avenue Elementary — “Creating Excellent Musicianship by Developing Math, Social and Academic Skills Through Crafting Authentic Irish Music,” awarded to Cara Rogers and Siema Swartzel.
