The Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools, Inc. provides schools the opportunity to apply for instructional initiative grants up to $2,000 per project. The number of initiatives funded will depend upon available funds. During the 2013-2014 school year nearly $40,000 was awarded. Review and award of project funds were based on the project’s anticipated contribution to essential knowledge and skills students must have to be successful in life and employment in the 21st century, clear alignment with the BCPS Blueprint 2.0: Our Way Forward and the School Improvement Plan, clear measurable objectives, and overall impact and potential for successful implementation. The 2013-2014 projects addressed at least one of the following instructional focused 21st century themes: • Financial, Economic, Business and Entrepreneurial Literacy • Environmental Literacy • Arts & Culture with an emphasis on creative writing • Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) • Health Literacy Projects had to be conducted and supervised by BCPS professional personnel who work directly with students, including teachers, school counselors, media specialist, nurses, etc. Projects must address an identified need that is aligned with BCPS goals for academics, strategic initiatives and key actions as stated in the BCPS Blueprint 2.0: Our Way Forward and the School Improvement Plan. Funds may not replace normal funding from tax-based sources. The proposal should describe a quantitative and/or qualitative method to evaluate the success of the project. Funds may cover travel, participation in events/activities, consulting fees, and speaker honorariums. Funds may not cover personnel or any related expenses for BCPS staff. 2013-2014 IIGrant Recipients were recognized at the Celebration of Excellence Breakfast in May at Padonia Park. All recipients received the banners belong to showcase proudly within their school house. Additional banners will be added as they are submitted by the IIGrant Coordinators and Administrative Team.
