Teachers & Schools
From help in the classrooms and professional development to paradigm-shifting programs for school-wide improvement, we work with our educators and administrators to make it happen.
EducateSRQ, our School-wide and Classroom Grants program, affords our phenomenal Sarasota County Schools administrators with the ability to improve schools overall and for educators to take their lessons to the next level—an opportunity we truly cherish. School-wide Grants enable entire schools to make greater leaps toward 21st-century learning environments.
Yet there is no better way to support our teachers and students than directly in the classroom. EducateSRQ encourages all teachers across K-12 grade levels to apply for grants that will directly support their individual classrooms through hands-on projects that cover all subjects or via an EdExploreSRQ field trip, a program we are proud to amplify. Educators report increases in student achievement and improvement in behavior across the board as a result of EducateSRQ grants.
Teachers at all grade levels and public schools in Sarasota County are invited to apply for project grants up to $1,000. Thanks to generous donors, the Education Foundation has awarded over $3 million for more than 4,000 classroom grants, opening new horizons for thousands of students over the years.
We received a record number of application this year. Awards will be announced by mid-November 2016.
