Educator Initiative Grants
Educator Initiative Grants (EIG) are awarded to individual classroom teachers or teams teaching within Cherry Creek Schools. The grants are designed to encourage, facilitate, recognize and reward INNOVATIVE and creative instructional approaches used in accomplishing program objectives. These Grants are a greenhouse for nurturing new and potentially scalable instructional programs. Grant requests of up to $1,200 are awarded. The Foundation requests a subsequent evaluation to determine IMPACT to the students.
