In 2023, SESLOC funded $26,015 in Education Grants, supporting 55 Central Coast teachers. Education Grants expand curriculums and support the addition of materials and resources to engage students. Here’s how a few recent recipients used their grants:
- Cambria Grammar School used funds to buy supplies for a lesson about the paper making process.
- Hawthorne Elementary School in San Luis Obispo bought costumes and props for students to learn through play.
- El Camino Junior High School in Santa Maria used funds to buy model cars for a physics lesson in measuring velocity.
- Central Coast New Tech High School in Nipomo purchased supplies for a CSI themed lesson in testing for genetics.
- Plus, multiple teachers have been able to buy art supplies, social-emotional learning tools, and books.
