Grant Description
Grants of up to $2,000 to Ellis County, Texas public school educators to develop innovative instructional programs that will advance new approaches to teaching in all curriculum areas for students in grades Pre-K through 12.

Grant projects should:
- Directly involve students and their achievement.
- Impact as many students as possible.
- Have defined objectives.
- Detail instructional procedures.
- Include evaluation procedures that measure program/project outcomes.
- Be logical, clear, and concise.

Eligibility
  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

Additional Eligibility Criteria
Eligible Applicants:
Applicants must be individuals employed by Red Oak ISD who are directly involved in the instruction of students.

Limitations:
Grant funds may not replace normal funding from tax-based sources. Requesting alternate funding for an existing project or program is inappropriate.

Because the Foundation’s funding focus is on innovation, it is unlikely that a grant will be awarded to fund the continuation of existing projects or to fund projects that are very similar to previously awarded grants. Applicants must make every effort to verify that proposed grants are new and innovative to the district.

Covered items include:
- Equipment, materials, field trips, technology, or outside experts/consultants if part of a well-planned project and is directly related to student learning.
- Equipment and/or materials for parent/family home use that include a parental agreement and a final evaluation that accounts for the materials and/or equipment.
- Proposals that incorporate additional funds and/or community resources.

NOT ELIGIBLE:

Excluded items include:
- Equipment and/or materials typically acquired through district, state, or federal funding
- Equipment and/or materials that are not requested as part of a well-planned project or program
- “Incentive” field trips
- Salaries (including stipends and substitute teacher pay)
- Staff development (registration, fees, lodging, travel, meals)
- Honorariums
- Requests that exceed the stated dollar limit
