Lake Washington Schools Foundation invites Reaching for Success (RFS) grant applications for the 2014-2015 school year. RFS grants provide up to $3,000 for innovative classroom or school education programs, which help schools achieve their mandated, but unfunded, Continuous Improvement Process (CIP) goals.
Anyone, including teachers, principals, or even volunteers, can write a grant application — and all schools are encouraged to apply! We strive to award as many grants as we can across the district.
Learn more about the application and award process at the grant-writing workshop on February 6, 2014, from 4:00 to 5:30PM, at the Lake Washington School District Resource Center. Grant applications are due on February 28th at 4PM. More information about the application process, including the grant application form and guidelines can be found by clicking here.

I support the Lake Washington Schools Foundation because I believe every student should have access to innovative and new opportunities for learning. The Lake Washington Schools Foundation helps to level the playing field among schools by providing much needed funding and volunteers. These additional resources give every student the opportunity to obtain the success they deserve.

Lake Washington Schools Foundation is pleased to announce it has awarded over $72,000 in grants to schools across the Lake Washington School District for the 2013-2014 school year. Reaching for Success grants fund programs and equipment that provide valuable tools to students, teachers and principals such as online math practice, tutoring, student leadership opportunities and musical instruments. Grants give teachers an opportunity to implement proven programs or to create new approaches to learning, while helping schools meet their state-required, but unfunded, improvement goals. All district schools were invited to apply for grants of up to $3,000 each. Twenty-eight grants were awarded to 16 elementary, four middle and four high schools.
