Every year, the Oregon Education Association gives Promising Practices Grants to educators to support student learning and professional development for OEA members across Oregon. This year, there is $2,000 available for grants to PAT members.
Grants can be used to fund projects or materials that support improved student achievement. The application is available here and applications are due to Jennifer.Dixon@oregoned.org by January 31, 2020.
Applications will be reviewed by the Instruction and Professional Development (IPD) committee on February 5, 2020. OEA makes final decisions in late April or early May.
In the event there are more funds requested than are available, the committee will consider the following in determining how to disperse funds among qualifying grant applications:
- Is the grant requester a first-time applicant?
- Does it serve a historically underserved population of students?
- How many students will be positively impacted?
- Does it support an early-career educator?
