Teachers in the Wood River Valley are invited to apply for classroom grants through the Cox Charities Innovation in Education program.

     The program will provide grants of up to $500 each to local schools to fund classroom programs and curriculum in public and private K-12 schools.

     “We know teachers must look for alternate resources to implement new or continue existing programs,” said Guy Cherp, Sun Valley market vice president, in a statement.

     Recent grant recipients include Wood River Middle School, which put the funding toward its Special Ed Life Skills program.

     Cox will award $1,700 total to local schools this year. Applications are available online and will be accepted through March 1.
