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.
