Terrebonne teachers eligible for grants for supplies

Posted: Updated:

HOUMA, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Terrebonne teachers struggling to equip their classrooms with essential supplies could get some relief this school year.

The Terrebonne Foundation for Academic Excellence and a Houma insurance agency teamed up to help provide qualifying teachers with grants of up to $500 to help stock their classrooms.

Executive Director Yolanda Trahan says the foundation created the grant several years ago after taking into consideration the financial drain of buying supplies on a teacher's budget.

Any full-time educator working at a Terrebonne Parish public school can apply.

To be eligible, you must have three or fewer years of teaching experience or be teaching a new subject or grade level in the fall. The application deadline is Aug. 8.
