Applications Now Open for ClassTag's $10K Community Engagement Grant
ClassTag Invites Schools to Share Their District's Creative Community Engagement Stories
- By Kristal Kuykendall
K–12 community engagement platform ClassTag has opened applications for its Community Engagement Grant, which will recognize a U.S. school district for engaging with families, staff, and the community in “the most creative ways,” the company said.
The deadline to apply for the grant is July 20; the application form asks school leaders to share their “innovative community engagement strategies and stories” in up to 500 words. One district will be selected as the winner and will receive a $10,000 grant from ClassTag to be used to further advance its community engagement efforts, according to a news release.
ClassTag’s platform “helps schools and districts unite their community in their mission with consistent, accessible, and joyful communications that ignites love and pride for their schools,” the company said. “This school year has been one of the toughest yet as districts faced continued challenges brought by pandemic, requiring districts to maintain trust and strong relationships with families, addressing teacher shortages and learning loss. Many districts, often staffed with one or two people in their communications departments, went above and beyond uniting their community, and those efforts will now be recognized and rewarded,” ClassTag said in its announcement.
The grant funds can be used for community engagement programs, supplies, and resources for the 2022-23 school year, ClassTag said. All U.S. public school districts are eligible to apply.
