Major Grants 2018-2019 Applications

PLTW Science Curriculum K-5

The SPEF board is now accepting applications for major grants, which fund ambitious new course materials, technology and upgrades that the district wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford. Unlike the teacher direct grant proposals, pitches for major grants will come from district leaders and school principals, who are currently considering what programs they would like to fund with this money.


In previous years, the major grants program has funded the “Train Your Brain” behavioral counseling program in the middle and high schools, a new Project Lead the Way science curriculum in the elementary school, high-tech robotic farm equipment for the middle school and a new sound board to dramatically improve the sound system in the high school auditorium, as well as two full classrooms of computers for the Foreign Language Department to use as listening labs at SPHS.  Thanks to every SPEF supporter for funding this important program.
