UDEF Awards $25,000 in Grants to UD Teachers

Dec 04, 2018

The Upper Dublin Education Foundation's Grant Program is designed to encourage innovation and to develop resources and meet needs that are not addressed in existing District programs. Our educators imagine the possibilities. We help make them a reality.
This school year, we funded 22 grants for 18 teachers, totaling $25,000 in classroom innovation. We're grateful for your support in helping us enhance learning opportunities throughout the District.
