The Topeka Public Schools Foundation Grant Patrol visited several schools recently, awarding teachers TPSF grants to be used for projects in their buildings or classrooms.
The TPSF grant allocations committee recently reviewed grants submitted by educators from Topeka Public Schools. Twenty-four grants were approved for funding, totaling $25,602 in Foundation-distributed grant dollars. The funds will be used for classroom, school or district-wide innovative projects. The grants provide enhanced learning opportunities for students that otherwise may not be possible. Topeka Public Schools Foundation Executive Director Pamela Johnson-Betts said the Foundation awards educational grant dollars annually to Topeka Public Schools because “grant dollars provided needed support to the district, endorse educators’ creativity and provide students with expanded educational opportunities.”
