2018 Innovative Education Stipend Program:
The Innovative Education Grants Program will provide Colorado teachers need-based stipends to attend the InnEdCo Conference at Keystone Resort on June 12-14, 2018. $500 stipends can used to reimburse recipients for registration costs and other other expenses related to the conference. Qualified educators must be certified teachers. Administrators need not apply. Applicants must demonstrate: financial need or other hardship, have a focus for their learning that will impact their classroom and/or school, and be willing to share their learning with others in their organization. Administrator support is also required.
The Request for Proposals will be announced here on Dec 1, 2018. Applications will be accepted online.
Innovative Educator Stipend Goals:
1. Support conference attendance for teachers. (Administrators need not apply.) Recipients must attend the entire conference. Preference will be given to those who demonstrate well-written applications that include compelling personal learning goals, a desire to share their learning with their colleagues, and financial need.
2. Increase the educational technological capacity in schools as documented by the recipient's school administrator.
3. The Innovative Education Grant committee will evaluate the success of the Stipend Program by the recipient's responses to the post stipend survey; publicity within the school, district and/or community and by sharing stipend products on school, district or other online repositories, or via digital media.
