The Clay Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization that works directly with educators and administration to improve public education in Clay County. Through innovative programming, grants, community partnerships, and events, we ensure that teachers and students have the resources they need to reach their full potential. 

In 2018, Florida became the first state to offer an education savings account program for students enrolled in public schools. The Reading Scholarship, administered by Step Up For Students, was created to help public school students in third through fifth grade who struggle with reading. The program offers parents access to education savings accounts, worth $500 each, to pay for tuition and fees related to part-time tutoring, summer and after-school literacy programs, instructional materials and curriculum related to reading or literacy.
