Riverview School District Education Grants available for 2002
The Riverview Educational Foundation (REF) will award educational grants in January 2002 for innovative projects which enhance the learning of Riverview students.
Through its grants, the Riverview Educational Foundation supports projects that provide an opportunity to stimulate learning and enhance or expand the school curriculum. Criteria for grants include a high degree of active student/leader involvement and consistency with the educational goals of the Riverview School District. Projects can be developed by teachers, staff, students or community members and must be sponsored through a Riverview school.
This year, over $8,000 in grants were awarded to 14 Riverview school projects. The elementary schools received grants for multimedia, reading, music and computer network tools. At Tolt Middle School grants for reading, writing, math and physics materials were awarded. Cedarcrest High School received a grant for a spring formal for students with disabilities. All Riverview students benefited with a commissioned band piece and improved assessment and intervention materials.
Individual classroom grants of up to $500 are available. Grant applications will be accepted beginning Monday, Nov. 19 and must be postmarked no later than Monday, Jan. 7, 2002. The awards will be announced by the end of January.
