The following message was submitted by Olympia Education Foundation Executive Director Katy Johansson:

The response this year from district staff who work directly with students to the Foundation’s Teaching & Learning Grants is the greatest we have ever seen!

So great, in fact, that we are putting a pause on accepting any further requests, as we may not be able to fund the final round.

If you submitted an application period 3 request before the 5 p.m. deadline on Feb. 17, rest assured that it is being considered. Applicants will be notified by 5 p.m. Friday, March 17, about the status of their request.

The Foundation will announce in mid-March whether we can fund any additional Teaching & Learning grant requests this year.

Please note: There is still funding available for SEL/Mental Health Grants. Counselors, social workers, behavior techs and restorative justice staff are encouraged to apply by 5 p.m. Friday, April 21.
