Our mission, through the grants program, is to give teachers and schools the ability to provide innovative learning opportunities above and beyond the standard BCSD curriculum.
We have provided funding for plays and musicals, school and grade wide murals, outdoor fitness stations, STEAM initiatives, science programs, music programs, school-wide gardens, composting initiatives and much more.
The Foundation for Educational Excellence has moved to one grant cycle. Grant applications normally are due near the end of October. The official deadline date will be announced in early fall.
