SSEMC is awarding grants to teachers through the co-op's Bright Ideas program again this fall. The Bright Ideas grants, which are allocated from the co-op's unclaimed capital
credit funds, are designed to help teachers who wish to extend educational opportunities and activities for students by developing student interests and abilities.
Teachers have innovative ideas about how learning can be made more exciting, effective and interesting and how curriculum can be expanded to meet the needs of particular groups or individual
students; however, resources are sometimes not available for special instructional opportunities. The Snapping Shoals EMC Bright Ideas grants are designed to assist teachers in the planning
and implementation of these ideas. Teachers should contact their county's grant coordinator to apply for a Bright Ideas grant.
