Funding supports Lincoln Community Learning Centers in honor of Phil Schoo's service to LPS.
Carmel Sheppard was passionate about equity in academic and social experiences for all students and their families. Carmel was committed to increasing success and graduation opportunities for her students, and the caring involvement of the adults in students' lives. She embraced every adult as a partner in student success. Carmel was a true champion of all children.
To continue her legacy, the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools and the Lincoln Community Learning Centers have developed mini grant opportunities to support the Community Response and Family Engagement efforts through the CLCs. The proposed grants will support opportunities for family engagement that are linked to learning, build capacity of all family members and promote opportunities for connection and sense of belonging.
Applications may be submitted through the CLC office. Mini grant requests may not exceed $1,500
