The GCRTA is offering applications for mini grants to currently licensed and employed teachers in Geauga County Public Schools. Teachers may request an application by contacting the superintendent’s office of the public school district where they are employed. The grants are a onetime award to financially assist a teacher with a classroom project or activity. These teacher grants will not exceed a value of $250.00. The applications are open for any academic discipline and grade level.
The mini grants for the 2017-2018 academic year will become available for interested applicants on October 1, 2017, with a final submission deadline of March 1, 2018. The grants will be awarded to the recipients as they are selected. The GCRTA looks forward to serving the students, teachers, and public school districts of Geauga County.
