The Clarke County Education Foundation is proud to present thousands of dollars in grants each year to deserving teachers in Clarke County Public Schools.
We are currently accepting grant applications from teachers for the 2018-2019 school year.
In the News:
2/8/2017, CCEF awarded the Clarke County High School a grant for 11 new iMac Computers. CCEF is excited about the vision of Phillip Facemire (teacher) at CCHS and the support of Principal Waring and Superintendent Dr. Bishop. These new units will enable CCHS students to be positioned on the cutting edge of both web-design and computer programming. They will allow the students to learn SWIFT software (the only programming language that can be used to create software for iPhone, Ipad, and other Apple products). Working with state of the art equipment will also ensure that CC students are competitive in the workforce in a multitude of careers. Very exciting resource for our public schools. CCEF is honored to be a small part of a much larger picture. Clarke County, small but mighty! See Winchester Star article: CCEF High School Grant
