Innovative Teaching Grants
Innovative Teaching Grants are designed to encourage, facilitate, recognize, and reward innovative and creative instructional approaches to strengthen student learning and improve academic performance.
Aldine Education Foundation offers Aldine ISD teachers and administrators the opportunity to apply for grants to support unique programs or projects that encourage higher levels of student learning. Funded projects must enhance student performance and support the mission, goals, and objectives of the campus and the school district.
Grant awards are intended to be used as seed money to fund new programs and projects rather than continuing previously funded projects. Grant requests should not be for programs or materials that are typically funded through traditional school budgets.
The 2019 application period for Spring 2020 projects is now open with a deadline of Friday, September 27, 2019. Please note: Aldine ISD has two earlier deadlines that must be met for every grant application. Be sure to review the Guidelines document below for further details.
Learn more about previous AEF grant awards here; but as your proposal should be innovative, these are ideas to avoid.
