New Teacher Classroom Grants

Friday, October 26th, 2012 at 3:39 pm

By helping teachers create a stimulating and motivational classroom environment, we help promote student learning.

When new teachers set up their very first classroom, it can be very expensive. There are materials and supplies that a new teacher needs, which the school district is not able to provide. It is very common for our new teachers to spend dollars out of their own pockets which can be very difficult on a new teacher’s salary.

Every September, the Foundation for Clovis Schools sponsors the New Teacher’s Reception. Each new full-time¬†teacher in the district receives a¬†grant for $200; each new part-time teacher receives a¬†grant equivilant to the % of their contract. This¬†grant helps teachers with their start-up expenses. In addition to being a financial help, the grant acts as a welcome to Clovis Unified School District.

If you would like to help our new teachers get a great start to their teaching career, please consider sponsoring one or more grants for new teachers at $200 per teacher.
