Innovative Teaching Grant: If there’s a professional development workshop or training, or new tool that would enhance your teaching skills and supplement your classroom learning, we invite you to apply for the Innovative Teaching Grant. This grant is focused on the individual educator and improving his/her instructional skills. Funding is available up to $500.



Collaborative grants are designed to provide resources for innovations that impact an LISD program, entire campuses, an academic department or a grade level and that have the potential to significantly impact student achievement. Funding is available up to $5,000.

Applications will be accepted from a whole campus, a group of teachers at a campus, a group of teachers or administrators from different campuses, or a Central Office administrator.
