Rick Moore was a beloved teacher and mentor to thousands of students in the Council Rock School District during his 24 years of teaching. Rick was passionate about Social Studies and also had a personal interest in supporting educational programs for students with low-incidence disabilities. Rick passed away on May 3, 2013, but his legacy lives on in the hearts of his students and through this special Memorial Fund created to honor his memory.
The Rick Moore Memorial Fun awards grants for projects that benefit students in either a special education or social studies program. Specifically, grants must be focused on:
the innovative use of technology in either a special education or social studies classroom or program
the development of vocational or pre-vocational training programs for students with low incidence disabilities
Projects may be limited to a single classroom, involve several grade levels or departments, or they may be school/district-wide.
