TEMECULA EDUCATION FOUNDATION RECEIVES CID GRANT TO SUPPORT ARTS AND SCIENCES CURRICULUM IN LOCAL SCHOOLS
September 1, 2015 – TEMECULA, CA – The Temecula Education Foundation (TEF), a 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation supporting almost 30,000 students in the Temecula Valley Unified School District (TVUSD), has received a $2,500 Community Improvement Designation (CID) grant from the Riverside County Board of Supervisors. CID funds will be used to supplement curriculum in the visual and performing arts and sciences in Grades K-12 in TVUSD schools.
For the past four years, TEF has helped fund experiential learning for students through its Curriculum Support Grant Program. According to foundation President Rebecca Weersing, TEF grants are used in hands-on labs and activities to empower students in their own learning process. “Students who enjoy learning are more likely to attend classes, complete high school, and continue their education post-high school. This allows them to become more responsible citizens, ultimately reducing the burden on taxpayers,” Weersing said.
The 2015-16 TEF Curriculum Support Grant application process is now open. The deadline for submission is September 30.
