Who: Teams of educators from Jewish day schools in the Tri-State area

Who should be on the school team?

  • 3-4 people per school
  • One must be an educational technology leader or an administrator.
  • The other two or three must be classroom teachers serving grades 5-12.
  • They may all be from the same grade or subject, but this is not required.

Additional Face-to-Face Days
There will be one additional date when everyone comes together. This will be set once the schools are chosen so that we can align to as many schedules as possible.

Does participation in the Summer Institute guarantee my school a microgrant?
No. All schools with teams that complete the Summer Institute will be eligible to submit a microgrant application. From those applications, we will select up to 10 schools to receive the microgrants.

Who receives coaching?
All microgrant recipients will receive up to six coaching sessions. Most coaching will be virtual (online, phone) with at least one scheduled site visit per school. Coaching may be applied to participating teachers and educational technology staff, as well as school administrators. All coaching is to support the implementation of each school’s grant application. If your school needs coaching or consulting services not related to participation in this grant, please contact us for more information.

Can our school apply for a microgrant if we don’t participate in the Summer Institute?
No. Only schools with teams that complete the Summer Institute are eligible for microgrants. The work we do during the Summer Institute will prepare school teams to submit their microgrant proposals.
