Your ideas making them a reality

    Eudora Schools Foundation Teacher Excellence Grant 

    Thank you for your interest in a Eudora Schools Foundation (ESF) Teacher Excellence Grant. Teacher Excellence Grants are made available to our district’s certified staff through donations by parents, students, and community members.

    Each application will be evaluated on seven criteria: innovation, impact, leverage, longevity, execution, budget, and project evaluation. Explanations of what the ESF is looking for in each section are provided as you move through the application. In addition, a scoring rubric is attached below. Not every project will meet every criteria and that's okay! Some projects may be stronger in innovation, some on impact, some on longevity, etc. The scoring system will allow terrific projects of all types to rise to the top. The ESF Board will use the rubric to score each proposal, identified only by project description.

    If you would like more detailed instructions on the application process the ESF has created an instructional video for viewing click here.

    Applications are release the end of August/beginning of September each year.

    The 2018-19 Teacher Excellence Grant Applications are due by 5 p.m on Friday, September 14th

    We will announce the 2018-19 Teacher Excellence Grant Awards on Friday, October 5th.
