How Grants Are Funded

Creativity and innovation are regarded as core values for district staff and students, and the Foundation strongly encourages teachers and staff to keep those values in mind when applying for a grant. We have implemented a rolling grant process (timeline below) in order to support you in a more timely manner.   

There are currently two types of grants, Research (TRG) and Initiative (TIG):

  • Teacher Initiative Grants - Teachers request funding for programs that are innovative and proposed to be beneficial to all students. TIGs will sometimes lead to large scale adoption when proven successful.

  • Teacher Research Grants - Teachers choose a research question that will inform the work of the District. TRGs may be proposed to cover the span of one or two years.  

If you are interested in applying for a grant, please click here and fill out and submit the form. Once we receive your submission, you will be contacted with further details.
