MLEC offers the program to help its rural schools cope with increasing financial pressure and show its support for education. All educators in MLEC's service area are invited to participate in the program. Grants of $1000 are available in each county.
This annual grant is intended to supplement funding of specific, innovative, classroom-level programs being carried out primarily in schools with greater fund needs. This includes multi-class projects that impact individual classroom instruction. Projects should enhance learning opportunities for students.
