Application for Funds
The mission of the PLUS organization is to create an awareness among parents, industry, community and general public that to have a progressive and growing community, superior education must be a priority. To promote academic excellence in the Henry County School System and in the Paris Special School District, PLUS will strive to provide educational opportunities over and above those which are provided by the regular school budgets.
Each year educators in both school systems apply for grant dollars to fund special projects and classroom initiatives. Using the funds granted to them by PLUS, educators each year come up with innovative and creative ways to stimulate students through enhanced learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom. An evaluation process ensures that only the very best grant applications are awarded.
PLUS grant applications are open to all PreK-12 teachers, special area, special education, and guidance within PSSD & Henry County School System. Applications may be submitted by individuals or groups. If multiple educators desire funds for the same project, the grant should be submitted as one collective application, rather than broken down between teachers.
