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.
During the 2023-24 school year, Cherry Creek Schools Foundation approved approximately $178,00 for a total of 177 grants to be given to Cherry Creek Schools educators across 57 schools. These grants will impact around 40,000 students within the district to further new innovative educational opportunities. The impacts of these grants will be felt by more than one-in-two students across the district.
