CAPS to accept grant proposals

Posted: Friday, Sep 20th, 2013

ATASCADERO — After a very successful fundraising event at the Taft Barn on Aug. 24, the Committee for Atascadero Public Schools is preparing to begin accepting grant proposals from local teachers.

“It went really well,” CAPS board member told the Atascadero Unified School District board of trustees at its meeting Tuesday. “We still don’t know exactly how much money we have to give away, but we know we did better than last year.”

CAPS hosts a fundraising event at the beginning of each school year which includes a dinner along with silent and live auctions that bring in tens of thousands of dollars for Atascadero schools. The money is handed out to teachers who request grants for a wide variety of different purposes.

Last year the CAPS fundraiser brought in $38,000 and grants awarded from those funds went to pay for a variety of things requested by teachers including books, projectors, equipment for the Physical Education program, software for iPads, pottery classes and field trips to a science lab in Avila Beach and the mission at San Miguel.
