    Dear Woodland School District Staff Member:

    The Woodland Educational Foundation is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications for its applications for its Fall 2019 Staff Grant Program

    Since its incorporation in 2006, the primary mission of the WEF has been:

    To creatively generate and distribute resources with which to enrich and enhance the opportunities of educational experiences of Woodland Community Consolidated School District 50 students.

    As a result of the funds raised from many individuals and businesses and other fundraisers such as the golf outing, the Foundation is able to generate thousands of dollars to support the needs of staff and students.

    The purpose of the grant program is to provide the supplemental resources needed for staff to implement innovative projects that enhance the educational experience of  Woodland students.  Specifically, awarding Staff Grants supports the Foundation’s purpose by:

    Enriching the curriculum of the District, and providing innovative academic and extra-curricular learning opportunities for the District’s children.

    Providing students with opportunities they would not otherwise be privileged to experience.

    Assisting in maintaining the highest standards for programs, resources, and facilities.

    Any staff interested in applying for a Staff Grant should do so by using the Staff Grant Application form. Important dates to note are as follows:

    • August 2019:  Staff Grant information shared with all staff
    • October 25 2019:  All Staff Grant applications due
    • October/November:  Grant Committee reviews all grant applications
    • December 2019:  Grant awards announced
    • January through June, 2019:  Grant disbursement/implementation period
