The goal of the Teacher-Initiated Inquiry Projects (TIIP) is to promote teacher innovation and creativity as a vehicle for school reform. TIIP has awarded 48 grants of up to $30,000 to teams of teachers in Los Angeles County across two cohorts.
TIIP seeks to promote teacher innovation and creativity by providing financial support to teachers as they identify, plan and implement their own professional development. Possible projects could include:
University course work
Internships at museums or libraries
Projects funded through TIIP represent a spectrum of disciplines, grade levels and schools.
25 TIIP III grants of $15,000 each will be awarded in the 2012-2013 school year.
