The Shakopee Educational Endowment Foundation (SEEF) proudly shared details on the $20,479 in grants that were awarded within the district (2020/21) during the February 22nd school board meeting.
19 of the 28 grant applications received within the district were funded by SEEF, with at least one grant awarded at each PreK-12 school. Grants funded innovative and creative programs such as online resources for PeK-5 students, enhanced science curriculum for Kindergarten and grade 5 students and literacy and core vocabulary resources for K-12 special education students, to name a few.
