Educator Excellence Innovation Program grant funds enable EEIP campus teachers to pursue professional development opportunities, furthering their own education in order to positively impact the achievement of their students.
The program is currently working with Forest North, Wells Branch, Caldwell Heights, and Union Hill (sustaining campus) elementary schools.
Instructional Specialists provide support to first and second year teachers on each EEIP campus and conduct formative observations, including pre- and post-observation conferences, with all EEIP teachers at least two times a year.
EEIP grant funds are available to EEIP campuses for professional development supplies, on campus professional development, and teachers’ participation in off campus professional development opportunities.
EEIP campus teachers are encouraged to participate in a collaborative action research project and create an individual portfolio (EEIP ABC Portfolio). EEIP participants are eligible for strategic compensation by achieving an identified score on the EEIP ABC Portfolio rubric.
EEIP participants are eligible for strategic compensation by meeting or exceeding student growth targets in oral language (Pre-Kindergarten) or in reading and math (Kindergarten – Fifth Grade)
