The Quincy Public Schools Foundation provides grants directly to certified staff members for programs or projects that benefit student learning and/or performance. Grants are for one-year projects and it is not the intention of the QPSF or the District to continue funding the project or its replication beyond one year. The QPS Foundation is not meant to replace traditional sources of funding for the public schools.
In 2011, one of the items Teacher Grant funding purchased was an IPad for students in the Communications Disorder and Cross-Categorical class at QJHS. Apps to be used were Augmentative and Alternative Communication Device, Autism Express, and others that support communication, academics, and social skills.
