Teacher/School Grant Applications

  • The Foundation Board has developed a classroom project/venture grant application. These grants will be given to innovative or imaginative programs, projects, services, and/or activities that emphasize new approaches to teaching, stimulate thought, and enrich and expand existing curriculum. The "Venture Grant" award can be earned by teachers, administrators and other school personnel. The foundation is pleased to be able to provide our staff with this program.
    As of September 2017 over $120,000 has been awarded to teachers with innovative ideas to support learning in DASD.
