The Foundation grants the majority of its budget every year to the 15 schools in the district to pay for programs, technology,
books and supplies. Areas that directly impact kids and learning. And we give each school the flexibility to spend it on their
greatest needs. See how your school has used grant funds by clicking on Individual School Grants below.
