May 1, 2012
HONOLULU -- Board of Directors with the Joint Venture for Education Forum, or JVEF, approved 19 grants worth more than $800,000 to support Hawaii public schools.
These 19 grants focus on funding transition and resiliency programs; 21st century and on-line learning curriculum; Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, or STEM initiatives; and resources to support increased Advanced Placement courses.
The board approved grants that meet the JVEF mission of providing continuous coordination through partnerships and open dialogue to promote an understanding of and implement initiatives to address the needs of military children and families and to facilitate educational support for military-connected public schools within the Hawaii public school system.
The grants will provide increased learning opportunities for students.
JVEF is a cooperative venture between the U.S. Pacific Command and the Hawaii Department of Education.
This partnership promotes interaction between the military community and state educators where issues of importance to the military and the public school system can be raised and resolved together.
This forum strives to provide positive learning environments and high-quality educational opportunities for Hawaii's children.
