Education Foundation Teacher Mini Grant

Our mission is to support and promote excellence in education in the areas of:

·     Academics

·    Student activities

·   Technology


Applications will be accepted from January 15th to February 28th. Please complete the application online and any additional supporting documents should be emailed to Stephanie Hudson at


Applications will be reviewed during the month of March. All applicants will be notified in April regarding who will receive funding. Funding be will be made available after July 1, 2021 and should be spent by January 31, 2022.

There is a portion of funding designated for music education, while another portion is for general use. Music Education applications will be considered for music classes and general education classes, as we understand that music crosses a wide span of subject areas and age levels.


The scoring rubric will focus on three areas:

·    Educational need

·   Impact on student achievement

·  Creativity and innovation


The greatest emphasis will be placed on Creativity and innovation.  Focus will be on requests that are NOT covered by district building and maintenance funds.

Teams, departments, and entire buildings can apply for group funding.

Funding is available, up to $1,000 per application.

All applications will be scored using the rubric found on the TFSDEF website at

In addition, those receiving grants will be asked to provide feedback on the use of this funding, and possibly create a storyboard for our Red Apple Gala 2022.

TFSD policies for purchasing must be followed for teachers using these grant funds.  Any quotes in applications should come from district approved vendors.
