District
Grants/Initiatives

The EFD recognizes that some programs and initiatives require significant investment and large sums of money.  The EFD wants our administrators to make curriculum decisions based on the merits of the program and not the limitations of our district funding.  The EFD accepts grant proposals for initiatives that impact a large portion of students in the district across multiple school buildings.
