SESLOC recently reached a milestone, surpassing $150,000 in education grants awarded to local K-12 teachers. Each month since 2013, SESLOC has awarded education grants in amounts up to $500 for innovative and creative classroom projects and equipment that go beyond the usual classroom budgets.
“Our local K-12 teachers’ educational innovation and creativity is inspiring,” says Carla Swift, Assistant Vice President of Education & Service Management, “and SESLOC is proud to support their classroom projects that could not be accomplished without outside funding.”
Thanks to SESLOC education grants, Central Coast teachers have used funds to expand their curriculums and engage students. Here’s how a few recent recipients used their grants:
- Central Coast New Tech High School in Nipomo bought supplies for students to build and study a botanical garden for science class.
- Cappy Culver Elementary School in Paso Robles used funds for coding robots and musical instruments for a lesson combining STEAM concepts.
- Arellanes Junior High School in Santa Maria purchased lego sets for an interactive team-building exercise for students.
- Plus, multiple teachers have been able to buy art supplies, math manipulatives, and books.
