CLOSE-UP science projects like this one from 2016-17 are among the instructional activity made possible through Education Foundation teacher grants in Hood River County School District.



The Hood River County Education Foundation has awarded its annual grants to Hood River County School staff for funding innovative educational projects. Each year the foundation accepts grants from teachers and staff for enhancing student learning.

“Projects funded through the Education Foundation are not part of the school district budget and this funding opportunity is available only because of the generous donations from supporters of the Education Foundation, an independent non-profit,” said Mike Schend, foundation president.

The foundation will give 16 grants totaling $17,098.
