Manatee County teachers awarded grants

MANATEE COUNTY, Florida -- Twenty Manatee County teachers and one private school teacher were among the 206 educators across the District's 16-county region awarded Splash! school grants on Dec. 20 through the Southwest Florida Management District.

Mary Margaret Hull, lead communications coordinator, attributed the effectiveness of the grant program in Manatee County to the strong partnership with Manatee County Schools, which helped get the word out to teachers. Judy Griffin, Manatee County curriculum specialist, serves as the District’s liaison to teachers.

“These teachers are receiving a small amount of money but are able to accomplish so much,” Hull said in a statement. “Grant recipients also use the District’s collection of curriculum materials and other free educational resources.”
