School Foundation Grants Announced

BSFEE Recipients and Committee Members

The Boardman Schools Fund For Educational Excellence has awarded seven teacher mini-grants this year, worth more than $7,500.    Each teacher’s project is creative, and will encourage 21st Century Learning.  None would be possible without the money awarded by the Foundation, a component fund of the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley. 

These Grants allow teachers to give students experiences which go beyond what is provided by state and local funding.   Items to be purchased for the 2016/2017 school year include: wind experiment kits, aquarium systems, individualized reading level books and language arts centers, elementary school music instruments-including tambourines and maracas, and supplies for discovery and learning stations in Technology/STEAM education classes.
  
   “These projects all have great merit, but as school districts work to control costs, the funding can be a challenge,” says Superintendent Tim Saxton.  “That’s why the money raised by the Boardman Schools Fund For Educational Excellence and its partnership with the Boardman Education Association is so crucial, and appreciated!” Each project was capped at $1,500.
