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:

Central Coast New Tech High School teacher Jessica Engdahl bought supplies for her students to make “biome bottles” to study ecology and the environment.

Monterey Road Elementary School teacher Taylor Wing stocked up on leveled readers for her Kindergarten class.

Cappy Culver Elementary School teacher Jackie McCuistion purchased coding robots and musical instruments for lessons combining STEM and music.

Nipomo High School teacher Nathan Shields bought young adult novels for his advanced English students.

Almond Acres Charter School teacher Rena Spooner purchased Montessori math manipulatives to support hands-on learning.


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.
