Next Practices Grant Program 2016-2017

Do you want to bring a new idea to the Randolph School District that will spark the imagination of 21st-century learners?

The Randolph Education Foundation (REF) is offering up to $10,000 grant for proposals from Randolph Township School District staff members. REF seeks to fund “next practices” – fresh ideas in education that aim to teach in non-traditional, innovative ways.

Some examples of next practice teaching strategies might include creating interdisciplinary classrooms, developing learning networks across grades or schools, giving students hands-on experiences, or using new technologies.

Deadline for applications is Thursday, February 17, 2017.


The mission of the Randolph Education Foundation (REF)  is to harness the power of our community to create opportunities that inspire teachers to innovate and enable students to thrive.
