Teaching Grants/Innovative Teaching Awards
The Education Foundation’s Teaching Grants/Innovative Teaching Program makes awards to teachers and staff who find better ways to teach, new subjects to explore, and interesting experiments to try. The goal of the program is to provide the critical funds that will turn the best of these ideas into action. The program is open to any Hood River County School District teacher, staff, district employee, or student.
Traditionally, the Foundation raises funds for this program from the community each year. The revenue from fundraising events are combined with individual donations, both annual and long-term, to fund this program.
However, with teaching needs increasing, the Education Foundation has recently undertaken a more concerted effort to raise funds specifically for the Innovative Teaching Program. We have solicited individual community members, local businesses, and sought grants.
