The grants are funded by the Menlo Park-Atherton Education Foundation. The MPCSD Business Office is ready to get these grants funded so that teachers can start purchasing.
Teachers who have been awarded this grant for the 2017-18 school year are being asked to attend a purchasing information meeting at their site during the next two weeks to learn how to access their funds. If you have been awarded a grant and cannot attend the meeting at your school site, please contact Emily Tracy to make an appointment to learn how to access your grant funds. View the schedule below to see when the Business Office will come to visit your school site.
