A new school year is just around the corner, and we wanted to tell you about two funding opportunities available to teachers and schools. These aren't big, complex grants. You can easily write these internally (but we'd be happy to help if needed!). First, in recognition of its fifth anniversary, AZEDNEWS is offering $200 classroom grants for teachers. Second, the Reflex Educator Grant Program gives teachers free access to Reflex Math for a 12-month period. It's a $1,300 value.
On the federal front, more than 25 new funding opportunities opened this week. We've highlight three below or you can see the entire list here.
