Each year, Saskatoon Public Schools Foundation (SPSF) provides grants to Saskatoon Public Schools (SPS) members to test or scale innovative initiatives and creative solutions that address challenges and opportunities impacting students.
For 2021-22, we encouraged a focus on INNOVATIVE and SUPPLEMENTAL projects that will provide enhanced learning opportunities for students. Projects must be unique and should not be programs typically funded by SPS or other sources. Grants were available up to $5,000 per project.
- Empowering Innovation – Accelerating creativity in education and inspiring new opportunities for learning.
- Literacy – Essential skills that help us understand, contribute and belong to our communities. This broad definition includes numeracy and other fundamental skills.
- Healthy Active Schools – Learning environments that promote physical activity and student wellness.
