• Teachers and Principals,

    We are very thankful that the Reidsville Area Foundation (RAF) Board has approved continued funding for GEM Grants for the 2018-2019 school year.  GEM Grants provide professional development grants for Rockingham County Schools.  We are very excited to continue this program.  I am attaching a link to the GEM (Going the Extra Mile) Grant application. 

    Tango Moore (Reidsville Area Foundation), Dawn Charaba (Rockingham County Education Foundation), retired RCS principal Linda Bass, Dee Moyer (Student Health Coordinator-RCS), Charles Perkins and Elizabeth Covell will serve as the grant review committee. 

    Please review the GEM Grant Purchasing Procedures, Directions for Use of GEM Grant Funds, and Grant Application Form with your principal, as your principal has to agree to the grant proposal. All grants should be submitted via the online Google Form by the deadlines listed below.  


    Application Deadline

    Application Decision Announcement

    All GEM Grant recipients should review the "Directions for Use of GEM Grant Funds" and plan to attend a meeting to go over these purchasing procedures also.
