Teachers (full and part-time), administrators and curriculum specialists within the Bedford Public Schools are eligible to apply for grants.
The goals of the BEF Grant Program are:
• To encourage collaboration among teachers, administrators, parents and community groups to benefit the Bedford Public Schools.
• To support creative and innovative curricular development that is beyond the scope of the typical school budget. Creative ideas can be ones that reflect alternative approaches to typical instruction. Innovative ideas can be ones that support “out of the box” approaches to curriculum implementation.
• To support initiatives that impact a significant number of students.
BEF grants are not intended to replace or relieve existing responsibility for public funding of programs for the public school system, nor are they intended to substitute for normal budget growth and maintenance.
