San Juan Island School Dis­trict would like to thank the San Juan Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion for the annu­al “Fair match­ing grant” in sup­port of our com­mu­ni­ty!  We are grate­ful to be includ­ed in this year’s “line up” of wor­thy caus­es that help our com­mu­ni­ty stay strong and healthy.

SJISD is ask­ing for sup­port for the K‑12 “Reimag­ined and Relaunched Grif­fin Bay School” pro­gram.  There is cur­rent­ly a high lev­el of inter­est in remote learn­ing due to the pan­dem­ic. Fam­i­lies are ask­ing for oppor­tu­ni­ties for their chil­dren to receive edu­ca­tion­al sup­port mate­r­i­al out­side of the dai­ly tele-school sched­ules. To meet the grow­ing lev­els of inter­est, we are reimag­in­ing and relaunch­ing a new Grif­fin Bay School. Start­up costs are sig­nif­i­cant. We are adding cur­ricu­lum that will serve K‑12 either in an online ver­sion or through resources pro­vid­ed to fam­i­lies. Staff at Grif­fin Bay School will mon­i­tor and check progress week­ly through zoom or email. This pro­gram will relieve work­ing fam­i­lies from the dai­ly sched­ule of the Teleschool­ing mod­el, allow­ing for a par­ent deliv­ered mod­el on the family’s sched­ule.  We tru­ly believe this oppor­tu­ni­ty will have far-reach­ing impacts for edu­ca­tion­al choice beyond our cur­rent situation.

The total goal for start­up costs for this new pro­gram is $25,000.  We thank you for your consideration.
