The Idaho Professional Standards Commission is offering Professional Development Grants for educators. In this tough economy, this is a great way for teachers and other educators to still gain professional development opportunities.
Grants for up to $500 will be made available for activities that include conference registration costs, travel, cost for substitutes, etc. Grant monies cannot be used to obtain credit.
Grant proposals will be evaluated based on the following:
• Professional development activity potential for demonstrated impact on classroom teaching
• Clarity of statement regarding the project’s potential for enhancing teaching practice
• Number of people (teachers, students, parents, stakeholders, etc.) impacted
• Appropriate budget
