Dysart Education Foundation Supports TeachersMini-grants support innovative learning experiences for Dysart students
DEF Mini-Grant Guidelines
The Dysart Education Foundation anticipates having availability funding for mini-grants each year. The grant application deadline is in October and awards are announced in November. See below for information about previous recipients of the Dysart Education Foundation mini-grants.
Any Dysart teacher or group of teachers may apply for funds. The person signing the application should be the individual with the primary responsibility for executing the project and reporting the results to the Foundation Board.
Dysart Education Foundation mini-grants will be awarded for up to $2000 each and may involve one class or any combination of students and teachers. To be accepted, the grant applications must be signed by the teacher and the school principal. The District Office will review each grant to ensure compatibility with district goals and curricula. Projects benefiting a larger number of students will receive higher priority.
Grant applications must be computer generated using the approved application form. The review panel will select awards based on originality, professionalism, established need, benefits to students, student involvement, appropriate age level, and budget details. Each category is equally important. Recipients must submit a brief written report on their project to the DEF president within 30 days of the completion of the school year. Failure to submit a report within the time limit will result in loss of future mini-grant awards.
Applications for the 2018-2019 school year are due to the office of the Assistant Superintendents in Dysart Unified School District by Friday, October 12, 2018. See below for previous recipients!
