We have all had a great educator who made a difference in our lives. A single outstanding educator can touch the lives of thousands of students over the course of a career.
Impact on Education, a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing student learning and support for public education in the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD), announced that they have distributed 43 Classroom Innovation Grants totaling over $40,000 to teachers at 32 different BVSD schools to help teachers have the opportunity to utilize innovative and unique instructional methods that require funds beyond the capability of their school and the district.
5,691 BVSD students will be impacted by one or more Classroom Innovation Grant-funded project or program this school year.
ABOUT CLASSROOM INNOVATION GRANTS: Great teachers are always looking for ways to improve their instruction and engage their students. The Classroom Innovation Grant (CIG) program is designed to focus on instructional and learning innovation. CIGs are available to pre-K, elementary, middle, charter, and high schools in BVSD.
Fran Ryan, CEO of Impact on Education, said, “By providing grants of up to $1,200 to BVSD teachers, we inspire and foster innovative and creative thinking among BVSD teachers, encouraging them to think outside-the-box and beyond the typical limitations of education funding.”

For 32 years, our wide-ranging projects and programs have driven innovation and fostered excellence throughout BVSD, annually impacting over 24,000 local students and educators.
