2017-2018 Grant Applications
Hot Spots has opened applications for The 21st Century Enrichment Grants, making funds available for 2017-2018 innovative community engagement projects, that are not accounted for in the school budget. The grants must address a 21st Century Learning Theme, an identified need aligned within the School’s Improvement/Progress Plan and outline a plan for community engagement. The purpose of the grants are to diversify elementary educational enrichment opportunities and increase student, parent, teacher and community collaborative efforts in support of out of school time.
