Innovation Grants

Applications for the 2017-18 school year will be available in April 2017.

An Innovation grant project is a new response to a challenge in the classroom, or a replication and expansion of a proven model that exists elsewhere. It is intended to improve student learning, through the use of materials and other resources. All projects are expected to fall under one of more of the following categories: teacher practice, student social and emotional support, STEM, early childhood, and literacy. Grants range from $200 to $5,000.

Although the primary applicants of the projects grants must be Asheville City Schools employees, parents, family members and community members are encouraged to partner with teachers and staff in creating these projects.
