EGEF funds initiatives that enhance classroom learning through innovative approaches to teaching. We support all areas of the curriculum, including math, science, social studies, English, reading, language, health, art, music and more. Key objectives of the Foundation include piloting promising programs, and supporting their replication throughout the school district. We look for three qualities in a project: innovation, creativity, and sustainability. Historically, these programs have been teacher-driven, and we do prioritize teachers’ ideas regarding necessary innovations for their classrooms. However, EGEF also encourages collaboration among teachers and paraprofessionals, parents, teachers in other schools, and with others to generate new ideas for programs.
