The Foundation awards grants for new and innovative teaching methods. Grant proposals should engage students, stimulate thought, and promote the mission of Oak Valley while helping students to learn and retain current educational standards. This year, the Foundation is particularly focused on school safety.
Faculty, staff and administrators are eligible to submit requests for funding.
Requests for funding will be reviewed monthly at the Foundation Board meetings. Individuals and groups seeking funds from the Foundation should be prepared to present the request in person to the Board.
Presentation of funding requests should not exceed 5 minutes and should include:
- Items for which you are requesting funding
- Total amount of funding you are requesting
- How you plan to use the items if you are awarded a grant
- Who will benefit from from the grant
- How you will measure success
Following all scheduled presentations, the meeting will be closed so the Board can discuss the proposals.
A Board member will inform you of the status of your grant request in a timely manner following the meeting.
