What is an Innovation Grant?

Innovation Grants are awarded to recognize and support excellence in teaching by providing funds to enhance elementary, middle school and high school curriculum. Canyons District educators are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to directly impact the classroom, encourage students and raise the bar on exemplary teaching methods.

All full-time school-based educators in Canyons School District are eligible to apply for funding to implement worthwhile and innovative projects related to student achievement. A grant request for funding of less than $1,000 should be loaded on DonorsChoose.org for private or Foundation funding.

Awarded project equipment become the property of Canyons School District and must follow fixed asset guidelines for tagging and transferring to other locations.  Individual teachers, as well as teams of educators, may submit applications for project funding.  If a team receives a winning grant, the equipment must stay in the school where the grant originated.
