Each year Snohomish Education Foundation offers our District’s educators the opportunity to submit applications for ideas that will innovate and inspire students in their classrooms and throughout the Snohomish School District. We are honored to have awarded 111 classroom grants totaling nearly $75,000 for 2015. $69,000 of the funding was directly from SEF and $5,750 was privately funded. 84% of the applications received for classroom grants were awarded.
With the support of our community, families, businesses and community organizations these dollars were awarded to each school in our district (levels K-12) and will enhance the educational experience of all 9,800 students. Specifically, these grants will improve programs in literacy, science, technology, engineering and math.
SEF began funding classroom grants in 1995. Since that date, $532,000 has been awarded in classroom grants. SEF continues to encourage our entire community to be involved in ensuring that all of our students get the education that they deserve.
