Innovative Teaching Grants
Aldine Education Foundation has a grant program to encourage and facilitate unique and creative instructional approaches to accomplish Aldine ISD strategic priorities or goals identified in Campus Improvement Plans. All proposals should be designed to meet the academic and instructional needs of students and demonstrate the potential for improved student outcomes.
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.
To learn more about the aims of the grant program and who is eligible to apply, please review the following documents fully.
