The family of Judi Chandlee, a longtime Dubuque Community School District teacher, has established an endowed (permanent) fund in her memory, with the Foundation for Dubuque Public Schools (FDPS). This fund supports annual classroom grants to teachers across the district. A minimum of $3,000 will be distributed in the spring of 2018 to fund equipment, supplies, or innovative educational experiences in Dubuque’s public schools.
Who is eligible to apply for a grant? All Dubuque Community School District certified teachers are eligible to apply through our partner, the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque's online grant management system. School principals must approve each application before they are submitted.
