The San Leandro Education Foundation (SLED) has Teacher Mini-Grants available to help fund your Project-Based Learning needs. The application is SHORT and SIMPLE! Each school site receives an allocation based on enrollment and need. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2020, or until a site's allocation has been exhausted. Teachers are encouraged to submit their request early and may apply in the Fall for projects planned for the Spring.

Examples of previous grants include Math Geometry Kits for a classroom planning project, a visit from a professional beekeeper, a classroom set of novels, and tickets to a theater production For more information and to apply, visit Elementary Teacher Mini-Grants or Secondary Teacher Mini-Grants.
