The Foundation began the 2002-2003 school year by awarding 34 Opportunity Grants to 66 teachers in 10 of the district schools. Winning teachers used the grant money to purchase equipment and supplies needed to conduct their various classroom enrichment projects.
Since the Grant program was created seven years ago, the 112 Foundation has awarded over 200 grants, totaling over $90,000 to more than half the District’s teaching staff. To date, just about every student in District 112 has participated in one or more of these projects.
