New Priorities and Funding PrioritiesFor this academic year, the district’s priorities are supporting academic mastery and authentic learning experiences.
Academic Mastery projects help all Shorewood students demonstrate authentic learning by integrating their knowledge and skills through creative application to real-world challenges. These projects give students the opportunity to demonstrate mastery in a body of knowledge and skills within each discipline; demonstrate higher order thinking, multiple perspectives and transfer of understanding; create work that is accurate, elegant in concept and execution; demonstrate original thinking and voice, connect to real-world issues and formats, and create work that is meaningful to the community beyond the school; and communicate clearly, and be able to write, speak and present ideas effectively in a variety of media within and across disciplines.
Student Wellness projects help students develop and maintain habits that contribute to personal wellness. These projects give students the opportunity to: appropriately express and manage emotions; identify and manage stress, including maintaining reasonable balance between and among competing demands; understand and avoid risky behaviors; practice behaviors that encourage physical health; and understand the value of good nutritional habits.
Character and Citizenship
Character and Citizenship projects help students build strong character with a commitment to contribute to the common good. These projects give students the opportunity to: be effective learners, able to apply the mindsets and skills for success in college, career and life; be ethical people, treating others with respect; contribute to a better world by applying their knowledge and skills to improve communities through citizenship and service; and be good stewards of the environment.
SEED grants will focus on funding resources, equipment, and technology that help to implement these goals.
Please note that the SEED Foundation will not fund technology for this grant cycle, as the District is developing a new Technology Plan. Once the Technology Plan is in place, the SEED Foundation will once again support technology grant requests next year.
