Our classroom grant program recognizes the incredible ideas our teachers and staff have for their students to experience learning in a new way! The Classroom Grant Program supports projects that provide a unique learning opportunity for students that build technical skills, practice employability skills and explores skills. To date, we have awarded more than $150,000 to teachers and staff in Cabarrus County Schools.
For the 2020-2021 school year, CCEF's regular K-12 grant program has been temporarily suspended; however, we are offering several special classroom grants:
- 3Cs Classroom Grant supports our students as they collaborate, create and connect since this is what students will be doing in the workplace, college and the military and we want them ready for success when they graduate.
- David Fitts Community Service Classroom Grant sponsored by Chick-fil-A Concord Commons provides an opportunity for students to experience the impact they can make in their community.
- Strick Dalton Innovation Classroom Grant seeks to reward CCS teachers who are innovative in their approach to teaching by funding a project that highlights these attributes and provides an amazing student learning opportunity. (This grant has been awarded for this school year - see announcement below)
- The CCEF Surprise Holiday Grant rewards one grant that the Grant Review Team thought deserved funding but due to limited capacity it was not initially funded. (This grant has been awarded for this school year - see announcement below)
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FEBRUARY 5TH AT 3PM.
Interviews will now be held February 13th.
