The teachers listed below were selected as 2014 Developer Grant Recipients. Potential Developers had to submit a detailed grant application providing a description of a program which they had developed and used in their classroom or school. Programs deemed innovative, successful and replicable by a panel of judges were chosen as Developers.. Classroom Developer Grant recipients received $600- $400 to purchase classroom supplies/materials and $200 as a stipend for additional work. School to School Developer grant recipients received $1,000- and $800.00 for supplies/materials and $200.00 as a stipend for additional work.
Each teacher/school has their program published online in the Idea Catalog of Excellence. Developers design a booth in effort to present and market their innovative program at the Idea Expo. Teachers from Polk and Hardee Counties are invited to visit the Idea Expo and apply for funding to adapt an idea they could use in their own classroom or school.
