New Initiative/New Opportunity for Shorewood faculty!

SEED is providing an opportunity for the school district. Faculty can apply for funds for current financial needs in order to fulfill current financial gaps. These grant requests should be for smaller amounts than the requests made through the full-fledged grant process which allocates funds for projects in the next school year.

To apply, please download and fill out the SEED Grant Proposal Application For The Current School Year. The grant requests should be submitted by January 15, 2015 via one of the following:

  • Email to Kathleen Rehbein
  • Mail it to: Shorewood SEED Foundation, P.O. Box 71235, Shorewood, WI 53211
  • Deliver in person to: Kathleen Rehbein, SEED Grants Committee Chair, 3721 N. Prospect, Shorewood, WI 53211

Awards will be made once a year, and the application deadline for 2015 is 4:00 P.M. on Friday, April 10th, 2015. Applications MUST be received no later than this date and time. Mail your application to: The Shorewood SEED Foundation, P.O. Box 71235, Shorewood, WI 53211

Funding Priorities

SEED grants will focus on helping the Shorewood school district implement the new goals that have been developed, specifically the key educational practices that have been identified! The following are some of the trans-formative educational practices that have been outlined by the Shorewood School District:
  1. Efforts to integrate literacy skills, critical thinking and authentic learning experiences across all content areas.
    • Collaboratively developed curriculum
  2. Identifying what a student needs in order to be a successful learner and then creating a learning experience and offering choices to meet those needs.
    • Successful differentiation in instruction
    • Customized educational plans based on student interest and need
    • Blend of current and progressive technology combined with face to face instruction
  3. Vision built around rigorous liberal arts programs, learning opportunities such as:
    • Service learning
    • Experiential learning
    • Career exploration
    • Character education
    • Asset building
    • Travel opportunities
  4. More general funding priorities that are still considered to be important:
    • Supporting and enhancing the emotional well-being of our students and staff
    • Narrowing the achievement gap
    • Encouraging safe and healthy children
SEED grants will focus on funding resources, equipment, and technology that help to implement these goals.
