The grants include: (1) Minigrants for Classroom Projects, which are small cash awards offered to public school teachers on a competitive basis to support innovative projects for which no public funds are available; (2) Parental Involvement Awards, which are competitive grants to stimulate educators and community members to work together on school-based projects to encourage parents to become more involved in the education of their children; and (3) Think College Grants, which provide funds on a competitive basis up to $1,000 per project for educators and community members to conduct school-based projects that help increase college attendance. Also listed are Partnerships in Education that link individual schools with individual businesses or community organizations in cooperative relationships. The report describes efforts of the College Bound Program, which encourages more of West Virginia's high school graduates to attend college or other post-secondary training. Outstanding Educator Merit Awards are described and recipients are listed. The final portion of the document contains a financial report. (KS)
