Teaching Innovation Fund


ACE will hold a grantee reception in the spring recognizing the grantees for the year, and we ask that you make every effort to attend so that we can facilitate the sharing of your terrific work with others district wide.

ACE encourages grant recipients to publicize their grants in their schools and in our community, as appropriate. Please consider promoting your project or event in your school bulletin, your school website(s), and/or the local newspaper or cable station.


Please retain any receipts, which must be made available to ACE if so requested.

Grant recipients are required to use their funds in the manner that was outlined in the grant application. If you wish to request that funds be reallocated, please contact us at ace.tifgrant@gmail.com.
