In the last six years the Plain Local Schools Foundation and Alumni Association have provided over $100,000 in “Star Grants” to various staff throughout Plain Local for programming that was outside of the district’s normal operating budget.
Grants have included support for:
- STEM programming at Oakwood Middle School and GlenOak High School
- Homework support both after-school in district buildings, as well as in several community centers
- International Book Sharing program where Plain Local students connect with other students worldwide in a Holocaust book share project
- STEAM programming at Glenwood Intermediate School
- District K-6 arts initiatives where students are exposed to various arts experiences in our community and arts professionals work in our buildings directly with our students
- Various literacy intervention and enrichment programs such as Raz Kids, Wilson Just Words, literacy growth measurement programs, and more
- Capital equipment for the stage, technology and athletics
- Staff professional development programs
- Elementary science and math programming
- Support of students with learning disabilities or multiple handicaps with after-school programs, sensory room equipment, life-skills learning projects, and more
