The main focus of the Foundation for Excellence is funding grants within the YCSD. Teachers apply for grants for innovative and creative projects, programs, and materials to benefit the students of our district. Grants are voted on each spring, according to a specific set of criteria, which follows the mission of the foundation. Grants are then awarded in the late spring for implementation as soon as possible. All grants are subject to approval by both the school principal and the district administration.
Since being established in 1993, the FFE has funded more than $500,000 in grants!
