Grants for Innovative Teaching
Grants for Innovative Teaching is a signature project of the Junior League of Dallas. Its purpose is to encourage and support excellence in teaching by awarding grants up to $2,000 to DISD teachers for special and innovative projects that otherwise would not be provided for in school budgets.
