The primary goal of the Kingsport City Schools Education Foundation is to provide funding for innovative projects that reach beyond the scope of the school system's regular operating budget. To that end, we will award Focus Grants to teachers seeking funding for their creative ideas and educational tools that will enhance the Kingsport City School system's standard curriculum.
Focus grants are small grants (under $500.00) for teachers (or teaching teams) focused on classroom programs or projects. Up to $4,000 is available annually. Grant applications are accepted any time throughout the school year (August through May). The Education Foundation aims to respond to each grant request within two weeks of receipt of each application.
The goal of the Focus Grant program is to provide funding for educational projects or program opportunities (when other funding sources are not available) that arise anytime during the school year. These educational projects and programs are typically somewhat smaller and less costly but have a broad impact. Focus Grant requests will be accepted and considered throughout the school year, as long as funds are available.
