What is the Grant Award Program?The Grant Award Program is a program that allows teachers to fund innovative and creative ideas. Often new innovative and creative ideas are not covered by other district funds. Our program allows teachers to try new and creative ideas.The West Ada Education Foundation has an annual grant cycle. The Foundation’s Grant Committee reads and evaluates the proposals for innovative and creative ideas for classroom programs.The final grant deadline was December 3rd, 2015. All grants must be received to The Education Foundation Office at the District Service Center- 1303 Central Drive, Meridian, Idaho by 4:00 p.m on the deadline date.
Teachers will be honored and the awards will be given at the Friends of the Foundation Reception.
To acquire the supplies once awarded, teachers will need to work directly with the Education Foundation Executive Director to complete the purchase of their supplies. Grant funds must be spent in the year that they are awarded.
