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 from DCS district administration for large-scale projects to support the curriculum.
Previously funded large-scale projects include:
Additional math and science programming and enrichment across grades 3-6
Eastern Michigan Explorer’s Camp, annually, for several classes of 6th graders.
Mental Health Programming Initiatives: “Mood Lifter” groups in grades 5-12, expanded mental wellness programming in the Y5-grade 4 level, and staff education to better support all adults our children are with throughout their day.
