Apply by March 30 for Individual Professional Growth Grant opportunities

Active members of the Olympia Education Association (OEA) bargaining unit are invited to apply by March 30 for Individual Professional Growth Grants (IPGGs) for courses that will be completed between June 1, 2017 and August 31, 2018.

There is $60,000 in IPGG money available.  If total grant allocations exceed $60,000, no individual grant reimbursement shall exceed $2,000 in any year for any individual. However, if total grant allocations are less than $60,000, an individual may receive more than $2,000. Thus, each applicant should apply for all monies spent on professional development during the grant window.

The grant application, as well as a checklist and rubric containing additional details about the application process, are posted on the staff Intranet. Once logged into the Intranet, click Departments, then K-12 Teaching and Learning. At the top of the K-12 Teaching and Learning page, click the IPGG tab.

Submit grant applications by March 30 to the IPGG Committee in the K-12 Teaching & Learning department. If you have questions about the application process, please call Christa Hilinski at 360-596-8545 or Linda Heade at 360-596-8557.
