The RVC Education Foundation raises money to fund grant proposals submitted by school district teachers and administrators. These proposals are researched attempts to create new and unique ways of learning for children on every grade level. For the upcoming 2022 - 2023 school year funded grants will total nearly $50 000 and are distributed on a districtwide or individual school basis.
STEAM projects, art and theater endeavors, robotics, and 3D computers are just a small sampling of programs funded by the Education Foundation.
