The Grants for the 2016-2017 School Year Have Been Announced!
June 28, 2016

We are excited to¬†announce the funding of $63,000 in enrichment programs for the 2016-17 school year, an all-time high in funding for this organization. The funds will support 25 teacher-initiated ideas that meet the organization’s mission, to promote student excellence, in each of the Bristol Warren Regional School District’s schools.

BWEF Grants Committee chairman Tyler Dixon was delighted to inform each of the teachers with accepted applications over the last several weeks after his committee completed their diligent review and scoring process against detailed standards. “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. We are equally thrilled to see several former grant ideas incorporated into the districts planning and funding for next year.”

This year’s funding represented a material increase over the past nine years bringing total funding by the organization to over $350,000. The areas of study that will be supported include math, science, engineering, art, reading, geography, music, foreign language, nature exploration, history, problem solving, special education and health education.

“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. “Promoting student excellence in our school by supporting creative and engaging ideas such as these is our organization's primary mission.”
