Before submitting an application, please confer with the building principal to determine whether the request can be funded through district funds. Submit the application on-line using the following link: RPEF Spring Application 2021-2022
YOU SHOULD GET AN EMAIL CONFIRMATION WHEN SUBMITTED
After the deadline, a report of applications will be sent for approval to the building principal. Approved applications will be submitted by the district to the Rogers Public Education Foundation for consideration. If a teacher is awarded a grant, and then changes buildings within the RPS district, their Grant Award will need to be reviewed/approved by the Rogers Public Education Foundation board. RPEF will not fund SmartBoards, subscriptions, travel, memberships, professional development or anything that is not for educational purposes (t-shirts, food, etc.).
If technology equipment is included in the grant proposal, please use prices from the technology equipment price list provided.

Award notifications are made each spring by RPEF board members. Grant recipients will be notified in early May. Funds will not be available until July 1, but purchase orders can be filled out earlier. Funding codes will be provided to the building's fiscal agent for purchase order purposes (principal, secretary, etc.).
Grant recipients need to show documentation of the use of grant funds and provide a review of the project implementation through print, photos, and/or video.
