Teacher Mini-Grants to schools, grade levels, departments, teachers or other groups of USD 250 educators will be provided by the USD 250 Foundation. The grants are intended to be supplementary to the curriculum or co-curricular activities of the district.
Grant applications may be submitted for any amount up to $1,000. The USD 250 Foundation is unable to fund requests for transportation and technology.
The Scholarship / Grant Committee of the Foundation will review the applications and determine the applications to be funded. Announcement of awards will be made to all applicants prior to Winter Break. The grants will be awarded after school resumes in January. It is expected that all expenditures of grant funds will be made prior to the end of the school term in May.
