June 21, 2015

BWEF recently announced funding of $55,000 in enrichment programs for the 2015-16 school year. The funds will support 22 teacher-initiated ideas that impact students in each of the Bristol Warren Regional School District’s schools.

BWEF Grants Committee chairman Tyler Dixon is pleased with the outcome and excited by the opportunities created for the students. “BWEF is pleased to be able to continue to support these exciting, teacher-led initiatives,” said Mr. Dixon. “BWEF’s goal is to support innovative ideas and programs that impact all students in Bristol and Warren.”

This year’s grant funding represents BWEF’s largest single-year award in its eight-year history and brings its total funding, over that time period, to nearly $300,000. The areas of study that will be supported include math, science, engineering, art, reading, geography, cartography, music, foreign language, nature exploration, photography, special education and a great deal of emerging technology.

“We are excited by all of the amazing ideas presented by the faculty, they continue to impress us with their innovative approaches to learning,” said Mr. Dixon. “Supporting creative ideas is a role that BWEF is uniquely positioned to fill, it’s our mission.” 

BWEF received over $120,000 in funding requests this year. “We are determined to keep pace with the growing demand for funding,” proclaimed Mr. Dixon.
