Before applying for an ITI Professional Development grant, applicants should contact their Committee liaison to discuss the project concept and receive helpful feedback and suggestions for a stronger application.

Applications for an ITI Professional Development Grant must be submitted by a Leadership Council member.

Innovative Teaching Initiative Professional Development requests should lead to or enhance innovative teaching practices in the classroom. Requests can include support for:

  • trainings and conferences relating to innovative practices
  • trainings and conferences on utilizing existing technologies, such as SMART Boards, or new tools, such as iPads, to produce innovative classroom instruction
  • curriculum materials related to innovative teaching practices
  • funding for Belmont Public School teachers to work on innovative curriculum and teaching techniques in the summer and/or during vacations
  • funding for Belmont Public School in-district, expert teachers to share their knowledge of innovative and teaching techniques with colleagues, external of their regular teaching duties.

Successful applications will reflect thoughtful planning, help reviewers clearly understand the content and context of the project, and give them the confidence that any Foundation funds awarded will be well spent. They should be clearly related to a high priority issue for the Belmont Public Schools.
