What is Best B.E.T?


Referred to as “mini-grants,” each educator may request a maximum of $250 for his or her school project, however, a team of four teachers can combine their maximum grant amounts to receive more money towards a common goal. Grants are awarded on a point system, the maximum achievable being on whether the application:

  • Fully addresses the objectives of the Mini-Grant program in a clear and concise manner.

  • Answers each question with a logical convincing description, including appropriate details and evidence.

  • Fully describes plans to carry out the proposed project in a manner which assures improvement of daily learning of all students.

Partnering with Claremont Sunrise Rotary, Kiwanis Club of Claremont, Rotary Club of Claremont and the University Club, the Claremont Chamber of Commerce sponsors Best B.E.T. annually, accepting applications in October of each year.

Thanks to the partnership with the service organizations, Claremont Chamber will be awarding $15,063.81 to teachers in Claremont Unified School District!


Factors to Consider When Applying


 Reviewers will score Mini-Grants based on content, plans, and ideas. The application may be typed or handwritten. The most important factor is the substance of the ideas and plans for the grant. All proposals will be scored with a 3, 2, or 1 per the guidelines below. The project should focus on students as outlined in the following objectives:

3 points will be scored for the Mini-Grants which:

  • Fully addresses the objectives of the Mini-Grant program in a clear and concise manner.

  • Answers each question with a logical convincing description, including appropriate details and evidence.

  • Fully describes plans to carry out the proposed project in a manner which assures improvement of daily learning of all students.

2 points will be scored for the Mini-Grants which:

  • Addresses some of the objectives of the Mini Grant program.

  • Responds to the majority of the questions with appropriate details and evidence.

  • Adequately describes the plan to carry out the proposed project in a manner which shows promise for the daily learning of most students.

1 point will be scored for the Mini-Grants which:

  • Inadequately address the objectives of the Mini Grant program.

  • Inadequately answers each question with appropriate details and evidence.

  • Inadequately describes plans to carry out the proposed project.

  • Does not provide for a promise of daily learning.

Applications for the BEST BET Mini Grant Awards are distributed to each Principal from the Claremont Unified School District and will be passed out to individual teachers.
