The first step in teaching students to innovate is making sure that educators have opportunities to be innovators themselves.” – Suzie Boss,


    The Bartholomew Consolidated School Foundation (BCSF) wants to continue do just that – provide opportunities for you to help foster innovation throughout BCSC by opening the BCSF 2018 Spring Innovation Grant cycle! We want to make sure you, as an educator, have the funding needed to move innovative ideas to innovative impacts by engaging your students, classrooms and school. The School Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the learning opportunities for all students, teachers, and staff of BCSC. This includes all levels from Bright Beginnings to McDowell and everyone in between. Our mission is to support you in your efforts.

    - BCSF is excited to share that we are partnering with The Heritage Fund for this grant cycle to provide additional resources to
    elementary math and science teachers via the David and Margaret Bottorff Math and Science Initiative for Elementary Teachers fund. A representative from The
    Heritage Fund will also participate in the selection process for any grant applications meeting the criteria for this fund. Elementary math and science
    teachers are eligible to apply for these funds via BCSF for any and all innovative ideas that will stimulate, excite and inspire elementary students in the fields
    of math and science. Budget items may include, but are not limited to, supplies, equipment, technology, books, training, field trip expenses,
    administrative fees, etc. for grant application that meet this criteria. We are excited about being able to partner with The Heritage Fund to get more
    resources for you and your students to foster creative thinking as it relates to math and science.

    If you, or your team, have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.


    Keep up the great work you do each and every day!
