Grants totaling more than $122,000 are going to teachers this month. The Highline Schools Foundation awarded two Impact Grants and 92 Excel Grants to teachers across Highline. The Foundation gave out more dollars this year than ever before.
The Foundation’s grant program supports classroom innovation and equity. Excel Grants provide up to $2,500 for projects that benefit a group, classroom or school. An Impact Grant provides up to $10,000 for a program that affects a large group of students.
“Being able to provide teachers and staff with grant funding is critical,” said Anne Baunach, Highline Schools Foundation Executive Director. “Grants put resources for student success directly into the hands of teachers and staff, who understand what our students need to be successful!”
The Foundation’s “Prize Patrol" made surprise visits to staff meetings, classrooms and assemblies, and Foundation Trustees presented the grants to excited and deserving district teachers and staff.
