The MI Classroom Heroes Grants were created to recognize the additional time classroom teachers in a district or nonprofit nonpublic school spent outside of normal working hours and additional costs classroom teachers have incurred or experienced to provide a continuity of learning during the period of school closure in 2019-2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Early Head Start Center Based Teachers, Head Start Center Based Teachers, and Head Start Assistant Teachers who taught in a school district or nonprofit nonpublic school during the 6 2019-2020 school year and meet the classroom teacher statutory requirements are considered an eligible “classroom teacher” to receive a grant under the GSRP, Head Start, Adult Education, and Young Adult Special Education Teachers COVID-19 Grant Program.
