Judi Chandlee Tribute to Teachers program awards grants

On May 7, National Teacher Appreciation Day, more than $8,800 in classroom grants were awarded to Dubuque Community School District teachers through the Judi Chandlee Tribute to Teachers Grant Program.  The grants will provide much-needed funding for supplies and innovative educational experiences during the 2019-20 school year.

The annual grant program is primarily funded by the family of Judi Chandlee, a beloved Eisenhower Elementary teacher, who passed away in 2011. Private individuals and school district staff also make donations.  

This year, 20 grants, from $281 to $500, impacted all 13 elementary schools, two middle schools, and two high schools. .

An additional $100 classroom grant was presented to Adam Miller, the Dubuque Education Association’s “Teacher of the Year,” at the group’s annual dinner May 9.
