In 2009, the Foundation for Public Schools in Edgefield County launched a grant program, Teacher’s Vision Grants, designed to encourage creativity and innovation in the classroom.  Since 2009 contributions from our community, totaling nearly $85,000, have allowed us to fund over 170 small grants (up to $1,000) to support programs that provide our students with learning opportunities that might not otherwise be possible. These grants have provided a wide variety of educational programs:

  • new programs in music and the arts
  • reading and literacy
  • hands-on and technology-driven math, science and social studies
  • career-skills training

FPSEC Board

The FPSEC Board of Directors is an all volunteer organization whose members are residents of Edgefield County and have a strong desire to support our public school system and its teachers. In order to direct the majority of the donations to our Teacher's Vision Grants, FPSEC has no dedicated office or hired staff. If you are interested in joining the Board of Directors, please send an inquiry to our address below.
