PISD Education Foundation Innovative Teaching Grants are designed to encourage, facilitate, recognize and reward innovative and creative instructional approaches to accomplish program objectives. The PISD Education Foundation offers teachers and administrators the opportunity to apply for grants to support innovative programs or projects that encourage higher levels of student learning. The grants must enhance student academic performance; support the mission, goals, and initiatives of the PISD; and support the Campus Action Plan. Grant awards are intended to be used as seed money to fund new programs and projects rather than previously funded projects.
Individuals or teams of individuals employed by PISD are eligible to apply for grants, as long as direct impact on students can be demonstrated. In the future, PISD Education Foundation grant recipients must have submitted a Grant Evaluation Form, in order to be considered for future grants.
