Follow-up presentation to the Englewood Foundation Board is required of all grantees. A summary of the data collected should be included in this presentation.

Materials provided may be used as a blog post on the EEF website.

Note: Failure to report the outcomes of projects funded by EEF grants may impact eligibility for grants in future years.

Eligibility

All school district staff, administrative, certified and classified staff, students, and parents.

Selection Criteria

Successful grant proposals will be selected using criteria in four categories: demonstrated need; project quality; assessment and accountability; and organization. Additionally, grant proposals should be aligned to the District Improvement goals:

  • Build a system of defined autonomy, empowerment, and accountability for all stakeholders.
  • Create an aligned system of curriculum, instruction, assessment, and accountability.
  • Create systems of engagement and re-engagement, which empower students to fulfill graduation requirements

Although grants for similar or continuing projects may be funded in subsequent years, the EEF may determine not to fund a proposal in any given year due to the competitive nature of the grant process, and the availability of funds.  

EEF does not typically fund:

  • Projects that have been completed prior to the application deadline.
  • Substitute teacher compensation/salaries to district personnel.
  • Construction and/or other capital expenditures.
  • Food and hospitality expenses.
  • Required textbooks and materials.
  • Previous awardees who have not submitted grant follow-up reports.
