If you had a blank check for your classroom, what would you do?

The Wayland Public Schools Foundation (WPSF) provides teachers with the resources to dream of new ways to teach and engage students. Take this opportunity to think out of the box or reproduce what works in other classrooms or schools. Our goal is to support your creativity and enrich the educational experience of all Wayland students. Since 1983, WPSF has funded more than $3 million for about 700 teacher grants across all subjects and grades.

 If your idea – big or small – has the potential to make a positive impact on your teaching, your students, your school or on others in the district, apply for a grant now!
