KCCU teacher grant program

We understand that great teachers are always looking for innovative ways to expand their instruction and engage their students. Often times they use their own funds to purchase supplies in order to provide the best experience for their students.  Here at KCCU, we are committed to helping teachers that are educating our future leaders. The KCCU Teacher Grant Program returned for a second year to provide assistance to our valuable educators!
