MCPS Educational Foundation Extends Deadline for FY 2020 Staff Grants
The MCPS Educational Foundation is extending the deadline for completion of Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 grants to June 30, 2021. Staff members who received FY 2020 grants will have until July 15, 2021 to file their reports. This change is due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
FY 2020 recipients have two options:
- They may repurpose their grant funds for other classroom needs related to keeping a healthy classroom environment, or for maintaining student connectivity through virtual instruction; or
- They may complete the FY 2020 program proposed for the grant by June 30, 2021, and send final expense details and a grant report by July 15, 2021.
The Foundation offers funding grants to staff to implement projects in the classroom. Grants are available for creative and innovative projects to strengthen instruction, for technology projects, to support music education programs, and for collaborative initiatives.
The Foundation will not offer grants to staff for the FY 2021 school year. The Foundation will dedicate the FY 2021 grants budget to a districtwide priority need related to the COVID-19 response.
