Equity is Success for All Students
“On behalf of every teacher from my school and every public school teacher in Eagle County, thank you E•ƒ(ec) for giving us not only the funding necessary to reach all children, but also a foundation of positivity, hope, and knowledge.”
— Beth Cooney, 4th grade teacher
Every fall since 2012, principals and teachers at Eagle County Schools are invited to apply for classroom funding that promotes equity in STEM and Arts and Music. This grant program is an effective approach to empowering ECS teachers in their endeavor to educate with innovative curriculum that ensures successful outcomes for every student, no matter their social or economic status.
To date, E•ƒ(ec) has provided close to $500,000 in school staffing, primary literacy support, counseling services, AVID tutors, paraprofessional classroom support, STEM materials, teacher support services, technology, musical instruments, art supplies and programs, and equitable access to innovative curriculum.
This school year's priorities:
- Health Sciences
- Mental Health Prevention & Support
E•ƒ(ec)tive Arts and Music Enrichment
E•ƒ(ec)tive Equity - This is a more general request for any academic or or in-school programming that provides an opportunity for students to achieve success or necessary support services.
2019-20 school year grant applications are currently closed and will reopen again in August 2020 for the 2020-21 school year.
