Overview: The HISD Foundation is excited to announce the first round of the HISD Foundation Innovation Grants to our district teachers. Grants are awarded to recognize and support excellence in innovation by providing funds – up to $20,000 – to enhance elementary, middle school, high school programs and curriculum. This is a competitive grant program designed to encourage teachers to develop innovative projects that lead to increased student success. The HISD Foundation Innovation Grant seeks to fund projects that will:
Inspire students, teachers, and parents to think differently about school
Enhance the student experience and lead to improved academic outcomes
Implement district initiatives in innovative ways
Find a new solution to combat barriers of success for students
