Our innovative teacher mini-grant

We developed The Innovative Teacher Mini-Grant to promote and support creative and innovative classroom practices in local schools. The Turning Foundation annually seeks applications from teachers targeting classroom practices focused on creating and supporting the demands of today’s learners. Through a competitive grant process, teachers (either as individuals or as teams) typically within Mahoning, Trumbull, Ashtabula or Columbiana Counties of Northeast Ohio have the opportunity to apply focusing on a few specific areas.

  • A connection to student achievement and the district’s school improvement plan.
  • Building administrator approval in support of the effort described in the proposal.
  • Inclusion of an evaluation component that will measure specific outcomes.
  • Partnerships and collaboration with other educators and/or with businesses is a plus.
  • The innovative practice must be replicable.
