The North Carolina Association of Educational Office Professionals (NCAEOP) District 14 awards three grants each year, up to the amount of $300.00 each, to teachers in counties with active NCAEOP members. The applications are judged by the NCAEOP District 14 Board of Directors and are scored in five categories: Age Appropriateness, Innovative, Intent, Impact and Clarity, earning up to 10 points in each category for a total of 50 points.
It was to our excitement that Lori Lolies was awarded one of these grants for the 18-19 school year in the amount requested of $284.95. Ms. Lolies plans on purchasing Math Manipulators for her classroom.
