New Teacher Grants
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 many materials and supplies that a new teacher needs which the school district does not provide. It is very common for our new teachers to spend several hundred dollars out of their own pockets which can be very difficult on a new teacher’s salary.
The Foundation provides a $250.00 cash grant to each new teacher to help with these “start up” expenses. In addition to being a financial help, the grant acts as a “welcome” to Clovis Unified School District.
The cash grants are awarded at the annual “New Teachers Reception” which is hosted in August by the Clovis Unified Governing Board. The Foundation underwrites a large portion of the cost for the “New Teachers’ Reception.”
