The East Baton Rouge School System and the Academic Distinction Fund are partnering up to provide funds to teachers and schools in the Parish.
The ADF is investing $100,000 in its first round of grants to help bring instructional materials and supplies to East Baton Rouge schools.
The organizations are currently asking for grant proposals form teachers of all grade levels on how to enhance academic achievement in the classroom. Grant applications are due in early December and the partnership will begin funding projects in January.
