The Alliance Project​ partners art, cultural and science ​organizations  with teachers in creating curriculum applications and learning ​opportunities for students. ​ performances, ​workshops, guest ​ artists/scientists, and field trips are provided to ​​supplement ​curriculum.

The grant covers expenses for approximately ​25-30 events at a value of approximately $10,000 in goods and ​services over the course of a year. Budgets pending board approval.

Our Satellite Schools are chosen from application to expand the experiences of students as well as increase the reach of our cultural organizations to diverse populations. These schools receive $4000-5000 in programs, library support and other activities.

The Alliance Project is funded ​by​the Science & Cultural Collaborative utilizing funds ​from ​the ​Scientific​& Cultural Facilities District. Funding is ​subject ​to approval by the​SCC/SCFD Boards. 

Planning meetings with the SCC Coordinator occur August/October/January/April with an interdisciplinary team of teachers (generally 8-10 teachers often in one grade) on their campus to ​hear requests for activities that might supplement their curriculum. ​These meetings can be used for CDE  re-licensure credit.

Cultural programs and activities occur at the schools or field trips to cultural venues from October to May.
