Once awarded, equipment becomes the property of the teacher to use for educational purposes.
Applications for all grade levels will be accepted for review. Educators teaching at public schools, private schools, or for homeschool co-ops within Kankakee County are encouraged to apply.
In addition to being awarded a Conservation Kit of their choice, the educator will receive hands-on training and resources to effectively utilize the equipment inside the classroom and out in the field. The District’s Resource Conservationist (RC) will work with the educator to create a conservation-related activity that utilizes the equipment and fits within the teacher’s curriculum. The RC will travel to the classroom during the 2019-2020 school year to perform a classroom activity with the students. It is also an option for the educator to “opt outdoors” for an additional hands-on workshop outside of the classroom!
