CEF Innovation Grants
CCPS is excited to partner with The Caroline Education Foundation to offer teachers the opportunity to apply for a CEF Innovation Grant. A total of $4,000 in funding is available for the 2018-2019 school year. These grants encourage and reward innovative classroom instructional approaches supportive of college and career readiness, technology integration, critical thinking/problem solving, STEM/STEAM, project based learning, student leadership/collaboration, etc. The Caroline Education Foundation will award Innovation Grants between the amounts of $200 minimum to $500 maximum per selected applicant or team of applicants (no more than two applicants per grant application). The application window will begin on August 31 – September 21 with the CEF committee notifying selected recipients in early October. Visits to CEF grant recipients’ classrooms will be scheduled in advance. Think innovatively about how this grant could positively impact classrooms and students throughout the year.
