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 8, 2016 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

New Priorities and Funding Priorities

For this academic year, the district’s priorities are supporting academic mastery and authentic learning experiences.

Academic Mastery

Academic Mastery in each discipline is essential as students move throughout our school system and prepare for college and their careers. Students develop academic mastery at different paces, which results in a variety of resources required to meet students varying needs.

Grant ideas:
  • Classroom Libraries
  • Enrichment activities as an extension of the curriculum
  • Intervention activities to assist students in the attainment of academic skills

Authentic Learning Experiences

Authentic learning experiences provide students with an opportunity to integrate their knowledge and skills through creative application to real world challenges. Through these experiences, students will demonstrate original thinking and voice, connect to real-world issues and formats, and create work that is meaningful to the community beyond the school. Projects with partners outside of our schools will receive strong consideration.

Grant ideas:
  • World in Motion – Johnson Controls
  • Watershed Wisdom – UW-Milwaukee Freshwater Sciences

SEED grants will focus on funding resources, equipment, and technology that help to implement these goals.
