The Teacher Innovation Fund for Michigan City Area Schools is a small grant program for Michigan City High School, La Porte County Career and Technical Education, and A.K. Smith Career Center teachers/professionals. It is designed to promote innovation and creativity making teaching more fun for professionals and much more effective in reaching and inspiring our students. Dr. Barbara Eason-Watkins, MCAS Superintendent and former Michigan City Mayor Chuck Oberlie provided the idea and the seed money from their own personal funds. They are seeking other generous and caring donors to join in the effort.
How Can the Grants be Used?
The grants are intended to encourage innovative methods of conveying curriculum concepts. Funds can be used to purchase equipment, supplies, tools for special programs or for ideas to enrich curriculum and enhance each professional’s ability to meet his/her students’ needs. Funds cannot be used to pay District personnel.
All grant recipients must submit a Grant Final Report including documentation of expenses by June 9, 2017 at 11:59 PM. Submission of the final report is a prerequisite for any future grant consideration.
