Special Education Class Grant Applications can be submitted January 1st to April 30th

The Special Education Class Grant is intended to assist Special Education teachers within the Weber School District with special projects or an innovative program that will enhance their student’s learning experience. The Foundation will provide funding for innovative projects up to $500 per teacher and limited to $1500 per school per school year. Weber School Foundation (WSF) has partnered with DonorsChoose to stretch funding dollars with matching grants. Requested items will be shipped directly to schools and thousands of items are available on the DonorsChoose website. The process will change slightly by adding the DonorsChoose application. While WSF is encouraging that DonorsChoose be utilized for items and matching it is not required. The grant application will still be received and approved by the Special Education Director.

The following criteria must also be met:

  1. The applicant must be a Special Education teacher currently assigned in a Special Education classroom in the Weber School District.
  2. The project funds and tools to accomplish the project must be used in the classroom and enable teachers to have greater impact on SPED students.
  3. The project funds may not be for textbooks, office supplies, and other things that are normally paid for out of the school or SPED budget.
  4. The project funds may not be used for items that are considered a requirement of the class by federal or state standards.
  5. The project funds may not be used for iPads.
  6. Project funds may be used for approved technology and software, literacy, STEM lessons, and physical activity.
  7. Each application must be approved by the SPED Director.  In addition, any technology request must be approved by the IT Director.
  8. Each applicant may request a maximum of $500.00, no match required.
