- Grants should be written to describe how technology, equipment or other funding needs will be implemented to showcase fun and collaborative learning using the 4 C’s: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.
- If Professional Development is required to properly implement this grant, the cost needs to be included as a line item.
- All grants are required to be tied back to grade-appropriate TEKS.
