Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants will be awarded in California to K-12 public and parochial schools within Los Angeles County for projects related to improving classroom instruction. Funding through this program is available for consultants, professional development, technology, or almost any other item relating to improving teaching in the classroom. Some examples of eligible projects include: project-based learning, inquiry-based learning, blended/hybrid learning, and integrated studies.

Please note, however, that these are only a few models in the broad spectrum covered by the grant; proposals will also be accepted that are related to instructional design concepts that are as of yet not heard of!

As a component of this grant, schools must link their goals for the project to the “Essential Competencies,” a set of skills necessary for students to acquire in order to succeed in college and the workplace. A list and explanation of the designated "Essential Competencies" may be found at http://www.riordanfoundation.org/grant_initiatives/competencies.html
