NPPSF REACH Grants for Educators


The REACH Grants for Educators program funds projects which pioneer innovative approaches to teaching that cannot currently be funded through the North Platte Public Schools budget. Our goal is to give our educators the financial support to inspire students and change lives.


Since its inception in 1994, the North Platte Public Schools Foundation has worked towards a common vision – ensuring quality education for our children. We feel the best way to accomplish this goal is by supporting the educators who turn this vision into reality. More than $143,000 has been given to North Platte educators through the REACH grant program since 1998. We are proud to invest in education.

REACH Grant Application Process

All current educators in North Platte Public Schools are eligible to apply for REACH grants. The REACH grant application — submitted in print or online — is due to the Foundation office on or before Oct. 15 and Feb. 15 of each year. REACH grant applications can not be altered after the REACH grant deadline.

Applications are reviewed by an independent grant committee, including the districts curriculum advisor and a member of the district IT team. The grant committee utilizes the REACH Policy Guidelines and GRANT Rubric to assist in determining the REACH Grant winners.

Those educators receiving REACH Grant funding will be notified by email within 45 days of the REACH Grant deadline. Those educators will receive further information ensuring that they understand the specifics of the grant and the process of REACH Grant funding reimbursement.
