Teacher grants are awarded annually to cover the costs or defray expenses for programs that enhance student learning in the classroom.  Awards are given for innovative, creative & diverse activities.   Areas to be considered for possible funding include, but are not limited to:  classroom research, innovative practice, or further study of ideas or programs that highly impact student learning.

Teachers, submit your grant requests now for up to $500.  A committee of the CFSFAA makes selections in April based on funds available from donors for these awards.   


Materials for the programs, which enhance learning in the classroom, are provided to teachers and staff in the Cuyahoga Falls Schools 

through donations from alumni and friends of the schools in the form of professional grants.
