The Barrington 220 Educational Foundation is now accepting applications for Helping Hand Grants. The purpose of the Helping Hand Grant is simply to lend a “helping hand” to teachers and staff to implement projects/programs in their classrooms and/or school that can not be funded through the district, school or PTO. The grants will be awarded once for the 2016-2017 school year, with a maximum grant amount of $500.

Grants will be available after November 15 and must be expended within the 2016-2017 school year.
