The Central Lyon Foundation funds Lion Grants, a program that encourages exceptional ideas that will improve the educational process.  It is designed to stimulate the development of projects that will improve instruction, but not serve as a primary source for equipment, materials, or operational revenue.  The program provides resources to educators to implement creative ideas at their school or in their area of responsibility.  The awards are an avenue to explore, develop and refine the educator's ideas for improving the education of our students.  Any educator employed within the district may submit a Lion Grant request.

The Foundation appreciates CL teachers' interest in this funding source and look forward to receiving 2017 applications. Applications will be reviewed and awarded in April, with the applications due April 1, 2017. Applications should be completed via a Google doc form by clicking here

The 2015 Lion Grant recipients are listed below, with awards totaling $10,014.65.
