TeacherPreneur is a grant award program funded by Great Schools Partnership and administered in partnership with Knox County Schools Office of Innovation. In alignment with the Knox County Schools strategic plan, TeacherPreneur aims to promote KCS teachers as educational leaders and creative problem solvers by encouraging them to use their expertise and creativity to improve our district and the learning opportunities we provide to our students. All full-time Knox County Schools teachers are eligible.
How We Define Innovation
Innovation is not about the final product. It is about the process.
It is about being bold and brave in the approach to problem solving.
It doesn’t have to be a new way of doing something
or coming up with a new way to solve a problem…
it is about being open to doing things differently.
There are three types of awards you can apply for:
New – a brand new innovative idea
Expansion – take a previous, winning idea and make it your own
Alumni – past winners taking their idea to the next level
**All types require a letter of support from the school principal and a budget outline.**
