The Schools / Education Committee identifies and prioritizes areas that would have the most impact on students.
The former Major Projects Committee, now called the Schools / Education Committee (S/E Committee) identifies and prioritizes the most student impactful projects including these areas in the past: STEM, Chrome books, and Student Health and Wellness program. Members of the Committee are assigned to represent various schools within our community. The School Committee member is called the “Site Representative.”
Originally the community identified major concern areas, the site representatives communicate these concerns to the school’s administration and teachers and the schools determine what is needed.
The school then prepares a “Proposal for Funding”. Any non-profit school in our area qualifies for the opportunity to present a request to the S/E Committee. This process is a two way program of what the school feels they need + what Kiwanis wants to support.
The S/E Committee also works closely with the Funds Request Committee. This year the Funds Request Committee no longer deals with any request related to schools or education, as they are now redirected to the S/E Committee.
