Wyoming Department of Education (WDE)
Grants of up to $9,000 to Wyoming school districts and schools to support innovative anti-bullying efforts. Funding is intended for the acquisition and operation of evidence-based and programmatically mature programs that are likely to reduce bullying in schools. Programs should make the largest possible impact for reducing school bullying and increasing positive school climate and culture. Districts can apply for more than one school.
Grants may take the form of continuing with prior anti-bullying work, starting new anti-bullying work, increasing levels of mentorship or character education that can translate into reduced bullying, or starting effective innovative programs that are aimed at lowering bullying levels. Eligible expenses include, but are not limited to books, materials, travel costs, training fees, speaker fees, reimbursed time for school staff, and printing costs.
