The Los Angeles County Office of Education and its philanthropic arm, the Greater LA Education Foundation, have launched the Teacher of the Year Equitable Innovation Grant initiative to invest in teacher-led solutions to support the students that have been affected most by the pandemic. As part of the initiative, LACOE and GLA introduce this resource hub for Los Angeles Educators to promote best practices, innovations and replicable strategies for other educators in LA County and beyond.
Grants are available to Los Angeles County public school teachers, administrators, counselors and other staff and can be used for all disciplines in grades TK-12. The grant initiative will invest in its first year $50,000 in projects, programs and services that integrate student-centered digital learning techniques, reimagine classroom boundaries and effectively engage with today’s student. Grants will also prioritize efforts on behalf of low-income and other vulnerable students who have suffered the pandemic’s most severe consequences.
