Grant Funding Process

The Foundation provides an opportunity for all WPSD staff to apply for mini-grants through an annual application process. The applications are sent via email to all staff in November with a deadline set at the beginning of January. A team of grant reviewers make recommendations of funding with final decision announced at the February Board of Education meeting.
