Because of the on-going uncertainty and hardships created by the pandemic and the additional burden it has created for educators, students, families, and the district budgets that support teaching and learning, ITEF has decided to suspend the 2020/2021 Innovator’s Grant Cycle.
ITEF knows that educators had to adapt on the fly and adjust to remote learning during a pandemic, all the while figuring out how to meet the many different needs of students. We know that in many districts and schools the devices, equipment, and infrastructure needed to make remote learning possible, were not available or in good working order, making innovative thinking difficult. We understand. We know that some remarkable innovating will take place over the next year and we invite you to begin assembling your teams to do your best and most exciting innovative thinking and planning for the 2021/2022 grant cycle. Lean Into Learning Grant opens on June 1, 2021, we hope you will apply.
Until then, we wish you good health and on-going learning.
