Previously this grant was only available to educators who had received funding from the Foundation, we are now expanding our nomination pool to any deserving educator and adding an incentive in an effort to recognize the great innovation happening in our district.
This year, the Innovative Educator award will be awarded to one educator from the nominating pool in recognition for what they are currently doing in the classroom. The Educator selected will be guaranteed funding of up to $2000 to support a classroom or school project that is reflecting the innovation in their work. We will also recognize every nominated educator with a certificate of nomination.
