Supported by the Clarence Olander Fund and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), the School In-Service Training Grants (PreK–5) provide financial assistance to elementary schools for in-service education in mathematics. For 2019–2020, grants of a maximum of $4,000 each will be awarded for honoraria and expenses for consultants, materials, substitute time, and conference or workshop registrations. Although this grant does not fund the purchase of technology, proposals including professional development involving the use of technology to enhance student learning are encouraged. Proposals must address the following: need, mathematics content, scope of the plan, other contributing sources of funding, number of teachers and students affected, distribution of costs, urban–rural isolation, and multiethnic student body and its impact on performance. Only schools with a current (on or before April 19, 2019) NCTM preK–8 school membership are eligible to apply. Interested applicants will find details about this grant on GetEdFunding, a free website sponsored by CDW•G with a database of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
Deadlines: May 3, 2019, 11:59 p.m. (ET), for proposals; funded activities to be completed between September 1, 2019, and August 31, 2020
