Faculty and staff in Lexington Public Schools are invited and encouraged to apply for funding to support innovation in the classroom. LEF grants fund the development and piloting of teaching approaches and materials that will enrich learning in any subject, initiatives designed to meet the learning needs and abilities of diverse students, professional development activities that relate directly to educators' classroom teaching, and programs that address educational and community-building priorities across an entire subject, grade, or school -- or at all ten schools.
LEF support offers Lexington's educators the time and resources to pursue their lifelong passion for teaching and create powerful, joyful teaching and learning experiences in their classrooms.
Apply for Grants
LEF awards three types of grants:
Fellowships - Individual educators apply for funding to offset the costs of their participation in professional development programs to deepen their subject-area knowledge and strengthen their skills in ways that will have a direct impact on their teaching. NOTE: LEF recommends applying early to have the best opportunity for a grant.
Program Grants - One or several educators apply for funding to explore and implement innovative approaches to teaching, to create educational materials, or to pilot new uses of technology in the classroom.
School Community Grants - Each Lexington school receives funding every year to implement a plan created collaboratively by the school's professional community to strengthen the overall learning environment and build community school-wide.
