A Networked Improvement Community focuses on building powerful professional relationships where leaders come together to identify problems of practice and then form collective theories of action to solve the problem. Principals who engage in networks increase their own effectiveness and long-term sustainability in their buildings (AWSP Strategic Plan Goal 2).
AWSP is committed to help bring building leaders together to form powerful networks. We have created Networked Improvement Community (NIC) Grants for our members who have similar interests and a willingness to address current problems of practice.

As we create equitable systems throughout our association, we want to ensure all principals have access to our Network Improvement Community Grants. We will be providing ten $600 NIC grants for each ESD region. Our new process will help interested applicants define a problem of practice and how their regional network will tackle the work.
The NIC grant application and companion tools will go live September 1. Thanks for your interest in this program! Questions? Get in touch with Jack Arend, one of our Associate Directors.
