Dozens Of Area Teachers Recipients Of Mini Grants
By Reporter Staff
Eighty-four teachers from school districts in Solano County have been named recipients of the 2007 Education Plus! Mini-Grant Program of the Solano Community Foundation.
This multifaceted grant program, which attracted more than 170 entries from Solano County teachers, recognizes academically enriching projects structured to enhance a student's learning experience at school. This year's total awarded came to $37,195 to K-12 public school teachers in Solano County.
As for Northern Solano County, awards included: in Vacaville Unified School District, $4,969 to 11 teachers; in Dixon Unified, $2,458 to five teachers; in Travis Unified, $3,547 to 10 teachers; in Fairfield-Suisun Unified, $14,733 to 34 teachers; and in the River Delta School District, which covers Rio Vista, $2,000 to four teachers.
"It is a pleasure to partner with teachers and provide opportunities for them and their students," said Stephanie Wolf, president and CEO of Solano Community Foundation in a press release announcing the grants. "They are offering experiences for students that go above and beyond their curriculum while expanding their knowledge. It truly is amazing what a small amount of money can do for children."
The program, created by the Solano Community Foundation in 2000, contributes to the development of learning and increases the awareness of education as a vital force in the community. These awards are funded in partnership with Advocates for the Arts and the Frank H. and Eva B. Buck Foundation.
The recipients of this year's program will be recognized during an award ceremony from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Solano County Government Center, 675 Texas St. in Fairfield.
