This new program provides three $10,000 Academic Enhancement Awards to groups of WCSD teachers. We are looking for programs that enhance or develop new and different approaches to teaching. The deadline for applications is Friday, September 29, 2023. Guidelines and application forms are on this website under Programs – Links to Learning.
For over 20 years, Assistance League has provided thousands of dollars in $400 awards to teachers for field trips, educational material, and other projects. This year, for the first time, this program has been expanded to also provide three much higher value $10,000 awards.
“We really want to make a difference for students in our community,” said Assistance League President Paula E. Jones. “We are testing out these $10,000 grants to see how these can really help students. In the future, if this is well received, we plan to expand this program.”
