Grants in Action

The Classroom Grants Program was the first project instituted by the Foundation Board, and is still a large part of our work today!

These grants were designed to enable teachers at all grade levels to bring innovative educational ideas, techniques and resources to the classroom that were not funded by tax dollars. Since 1985, the Foundation has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in grant funding for educational programs in the district, impacting every student in the system and providing opportunities for educational enrichment both inside and out of the classroom.

Check out some of our recently funded grants in action!
