Strategic grants are designed to support major curricular or educational initiatives that have broad impact in the district. Saline administrators are invited annually to present proposals to the Board of Trustees as candidates for strategic grant funding. FSAS may elect to fund one strategic grant per year and will design a fundraising campaign specific to selected initiative with a targeted dollar goal. FSAS general funds are not typically used to support strategic grants but rather the award is dependent on the culminated efforts of the specific strategic fundraising campaign.
Benefactor support is critical to the success of the strategic grant process. The funding model for public schools in the State of Michigan has made it difficult in recent years for the district to earmark funds to create and/or sustain innovative instructional programs and curricular advancements that have distinguished the Saline educational experience. Please consider making a donation in support of this year’s strategic grant award.
