Program 1

1. The LFEE offers Venture Grants, ranging from $100 to $5,000 to teachers for innovative programs - either in the classroom or for a school-wide initiative. In the past two school years, the $230,000 granted has funded programs that reached almost every student in the District. 2. LFEE received a Schools & Community Initiative grant in 2002 from the Public Education Network, funded by the Annenberg Foundation. The initiative has assisted students and families in accessing mental and behavioral health services in many District schools. 3. LFEE partners with other education foundations in Pennsylvania. In December, 2005, students from McCaskey High School were part of state hearings to help determine the impact of the No Child Left Behind federal law on Pennsylvania. In November, 2006, hearings are again scheduled. 4. LFEE works closely with the high school Alumni Association in our district, J.P. McCaskey High School. 5. LFEE is the fiscal agent for a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation grant to support individualized learning and acnievement in McCaskey High School.
