Griffin Bay School Virtual Fair Grant Opportunity

New Building For Griffin Bay School – Contributed photo

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.
