School Spirit Educational Endowment

Details About This

program

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.

The School Spirit Educational Endowment has been created for Green Bay Area Public School teachers, staff, students, and parents to provide mini-grants to explore creative ways of delivering educational experiences.

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.
