School Spirit Educational Endowment
The School Spirit Educational Endowment Fund of the Green Bay Area Public School District supports excellence in the teaching and learning process. The endowment fund is a catalyst for the implementation of innovative or enhanced learning activities.
Innovation is the key to the Educational Endowment. It is not meant to replace ongoing public support of education, but rather enhances learning opportunities by the initiation and customization of creative educational practices. The most successful efforts can become the basis for district-wide programs and serve as models for school districts across the country.
