This program allows grants of up to $1000 to be awarded to teachers for the implementation o innovative ideas in the classroom for which federal school funding is not available. The grant program also provides recognition to teachers for particularly creative endeavors in the classroom. The process increases community interaction with school by involving individuals form the community in the review program.
