SSEMC is awarding $55,000 in grants to a number of teachers through the co-op's Bright Ideas program again this fall. The Bright Ideas grants, which are
allocated from the co-ops unclaimed capital credit funds, are designed to help teachers who wish to extend educational opportunities and activities for
students by developing student interests and abilities.
Teachers have innovative ideas about how learning can be made more exciting, effective and interesting and how curriculm can be expanded to meet
the needs of particular groups or individual students; however, resources are sometimes not available for special instructional opportunities. The
Snapping Shoals EMC Bright Ideas grants are designed to assist teachers in the planning and implementation of these ideas.
Teachers should contact their county's board of education to apply for a Bright Ideas grant.
