Ignition Grant Application for Teams Planning Teacher-Powered Schools
This application form is for the Ignition Grants program, which is described at: http://www.teacherpowered.org/grants.

The purpose of these Ignition Grants is to help committed groups of teachers in the planning process of designing and implementing a teacher-powered school or for teams looking to improve their teacher-powered practices and structures. For Ignition Grants teachers will need to have formed a design team and have completed the Forming Stage of the Steps Guide. The Ignition Grant is used in the Storming Stage. While, these grants are not designed to be all encompassing or enough funding to complete the whole start-up process, they will jump start the process and empower teachers to create schools that better serve the students in their communities.
