The Bay Education Foundation Employee Tuition Assistance program is available to all district employees who are pursuing degrees or certifications that benefit Bay District Schools (including charter schools). For example, a Master’s Degree in Reading clearly benefits district. Preference is given to applicants who are attending Gulf Coast State College, or Florida State University-Panama City; however, consideration will be given to programs administered by accredited institutions of higher learning IF those programs are not available through GCSC or FSU-PC.
Substantial bonus points will be awarded to applicants who are:
Pursuing a degree/certification in a critical shortage area, AND/OR
Pursuing a degree that keeps them in the classroom, AND/OR
