NPPSF REACH Grants for Educators
The REACH Grants program funds projects which pioneer innovative approaches to teaching that cannot currently be funded through NPPS District's budget. The goal is to give educators financial support to inspire students and change lives.
Since its inception in 1994, the North Platte Public Schools Foundation has worked toward a common vision – ensuring quality education for our children. The best way to accomplish this goal is by supporting the educators who turn this vision into reality. More than $200,000 has been given to North Platte educators through the REACH grant program since 1998. It's a great way to invest in education.
