Casco Bay Classroom Educators, Nonprofits, and Digital Content Creators:

Digital & Distance Learning Grants Available
In an effort to provide our community of school educators, non-profit environmental educators, science communicators & others more tools for carrying out their work from home through these challenging times, Casco Bay Estuary Partnership is offering this pilot small grant program for creative tools for K-12 digital and distance learning. The final products will be transferable lessons or materials that focus on estuary or related topics, such as those found in the Casco Bay Plan:

Fundable projects include, but are not limited to:
  • Creation or modification of a virtual K-12 Casco Bay/estuary lesson plan that adheres to state standards
  • Place-based field lessons for parents and educators
  • Creation or modification of a virtual estuary “toolkit” or other transferable package for educators
  • Creation of a fact sheet, infographics, or other digital resources that could be shared
Funded projects will be shared through all CBEP partners, as well as through the new Community Learning for ME site:

We also wanted to let you know about a new resource to support learning from home. The intention of this site is "to provide parents and teachers with resources, supports and networking opportunities to support students in this difficult time." The site is a temporary response to COVID-19, and web content and session links will change daily.
