Lift Literature seeks project proposals from teachers/staff in Lake Tahoe Unified School District that will ignite the love of reading in students in their classrooms. Projects can be in any classroom setting (science, math, PE, history, English, secondary, special ed, after-school, etc.). Projects should demonstrate the following:

  • Address literacy challenges in the classroom

  • Engage students in the love of reading

  • Be creative and innovative

  • Cannot otherwise be funded by the by the school’s PTA or District funding

  • Extra points will be awarded to projects that target ESL readers

 

Grants up will be up to $500. Lift will gift 4-5 awards directly to teachers/staff. If we receive many proposals, we will seek additional funding from private donors to attempt to meet needs. We encourage you to submit as many project ideas as possible to demonstrate the need.
