Teacher Resources

At the Woodland Hills Foundation, Public education is the single-most important institution and a vital part of the community fabric. Identifying and delivering improvement opportunities not just for students but for faculty and staff is foundational – we can only develop world class students with world class faculty and staff.

We want you, the teachers and staff at the Woodland Hills School District, to see the Foundation as a resource. 

Mini-Grants are modest cash awards that help educators make a positive difference in the learning experience of their students. More importantly, Mini-Grants support, encourage, and facilitate great teaching ideas. Since 2002, the Woodland Hills Foundation has funded 200 Mini-Grants totaling over $115,000.

The focus of the Mini-Grants is to encourage innovative teaching ideas. As such, the focus of these grants should not be to purchase equipment (e.g. iPads), but rather the idea aimed at improving the learning environment for the student. The Foundation understands that grant requests may include equipment or software, but these requests will only be considered within the context of the original, innovative teaching idea.  

Mini-Grants

Who can apply for a Mini-Grant?

Clear articulation of a good original teaching idea, along with its expected impact, are the basis of a successful application.  Pre-approval by applicant’s principal is required for all proposed projects. With the pandemic in mind, we have pushed back the application deadline to November 30.  Winners will be announced by December 11, 2020.
