The Cleburne Education Foundation (CEF) Grant program was created to provide an opportunity for teachers to apply for grants to fund projects/programs for which there are no state or local funds available. CEF expanded its grant offerings in 2014 to meet a wider range of needs for enhancing student learning opportunities.
Excellence in Education – Innovative Grants
The Excellence in Education Innovative Grants are designed to encourage teachers to apply for funds that will allow them to enhance their classroom instruction through innovative teaching strategies, advanced technology, and creative instructional tools that help facilitate differentiated instruction to better meet student learning needs. Applications are scored on a number of criteria including the purpose and need for the project, anticipated student outcomes, number of students served, innovativeness of the project and quality of the evaluation plan. Applications are due in January each year and grants are awarded in early March. Grant requests for up to and including $5,000 are considered.
