Awarding Grants For More Than 25 Years...
Our foundation is dedicated to providing resources so that each student’s quality education continues and thrives in the years to come. To that end, teachers, administrators and student groups throughout the district are provided opportunities twice a year to submit grant requests for innovative programs to benefit their classroom, team of students or even their entire building. Grant proposals span a rich range of topics such as reading and literature, character education, photography, entrepreneurship, history, math, computer, foreign language, dance, art, music, science, community service, physical education, leadership and job skills.

Student Impact Grants
For 2021-2022, the MTEF Board of Directors approved the creation of a Student Impact Fund to make the grant application process more accessible and to empower students to achieve their innovative ideas. Student impact grants may be submitted at any time during the school year. The Student Impact Fund is reserved for requests under $1,000. (Requests over $1,000 should be submitted through the general grant process, above). Like all MTEF projects, applications should highlight innovation and benefit more than one student. Grant applications require the signature of a teacher, who will manage funds awarded, as well as Principal Rilatt.
