Grants to Oconomowoc, Wisconsin schools for innovative and creative educational projects that positively impact student learning.

- More than “brick and mortar” or equipment – must expand/enhance teaching and learning
- Creative programming, curriculum-based, innovative, fosters leadership, learners and belonging
- Long-term potential to impact student learning Grant proposals are strengthened if other groups (i.e. Individual school PTO, parents, businesses, civic or community organizations, etc.) are involved as resources for the project.

NOTE: The Oconomowoc Public Education Foundation Board of Directors will limit the funding of all grants to a maximum of two (2) consecutive terms for strong 2 development and implementation.
