OSDEF update on teacher grants

Due to the Olympia School District’s move to distance learning for the remainder of the current school year, any OSDEF grant recipient who has not used their 2019-20 grant funds as of April 30, 2020, may either request in writing a carry-over of the 2019-20 grant funds to the 2020-21 school year, or return the grant funds to the OSDEF. Any grant funds returned will receive priority for the 2020-21 grant year.

If you were able to complete your grant project, please fill out and return your required Post-Grant Report (by email) to info@osdef.org. Only upon completion of this report are grantees eligible for future funding.

While no new grant applications will be accepted for the current school year, the OSDEF looks forward to re-opening the Grant Request process for the 2020-21 school year on August 3, 2020.
