Innovative Teaching

Great Ideas Teaching Grants

The Great Ideas 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.  More information can be found by calling the Foundation office at 651-0555 or click on the Grant Application page.
