The Innovative Teaching Grants Program is designed to put money directly into projects designed by classroom teachers, helping educators take ideas for innovative teaching strategies and make them a reality. This is a competitive program in which the Grants Committee will review each grant individually for approval. Grant applications will be accepted once a year and must align with the district's current curriculum guidelines. The Foundation also hopes to help teachers and administrators in their endeavor for professional development and innovative teaching.
