Innovative teacher grants are awarded annually throughout the district to fund areas that bring a new perspective or challenge to the student population

The Novi Educational Foundation (NEF) annually extends grant opportunities for instructional programs to Novi teachers, parent-teacher organizations and administrators who seek funding for additional resources that support creative ideas and challenging opportunities for our Novi students. NEF grants promote educational leadership and academic excellence. The NEF grant process encourages projects which can be developed, shared, and replicated among all the schools in the district.


In 2016, the Novi Educational Foundation gave almost $14,000 to all Novi Schools.  In the past five years the NEF has given $110,00 to enhance learning experiences for Novi students throughout the district through our teacher grant program.
