Education Grants Support Learning in the 2021-2022 School Year

SESLOC Education Grants provide funding to support innovation and expand supplies at local K-12 schools. Here’s how a few teachers recently used grants to support their students’ return to the classroom:

Mission Prep High School teacher Mike Daniels used funds to replace his classroom’s saltwater aquarium reverse osmosis system.

Central Coast New Tech High School teacher Kristi Greco used a grant for a lesson in climate and weather systems, and teacher Gavin Schroter purchased supplies for a botanical garden for labs and research.

Oceano Elementary School librarian Kelci Gonzalez stocked up on Social Emotional Learning books.

Maple High School teacher Matt Makowetski used funds for Project Surf Camp, where his students assist special needs youth.

Hawthorne Elementary School teachers recently went in on some grants to add a shared outdoor magnetic wall and whiteboard in their play area to support hands-on lessons in science, math, building, exploration, and more.


With our roots as a credit union for San Luis Obispo county educators, SESLOC has a strong commitment to education. Wherever learning occurs, we support creativity and innovation through our Education Grants program.

Pre-K through 12th grade teachers and directors of enrichment programs at accredited schools within San Luis Obispo and Northern Santa Barbara Counties are invited to apply for grants up to $500 to fund special projects and expand classroom resources.

SESLOC supports our community. Help us support local schools by sharing the grant application with Central Coast teachers or applying today.
