2016-17 Classroom Grants
This year, teachers submitted 391 classroom grants - more than ever! There were lots of field trips, a growing number of science grants, and, like every year, art, music and dance. We hope to bring lots of smiles to classrooms this year!
We learn so much when we review these grants every year. It gives us ideas for even bigger ways to support the educational experience of Berkeley students. Stay tuned!
2017 Summer Fellows
We're funding this year's ten Summer Teacher Fellows to go to exciting destinations like New York City and Peru to learn valuable practices and insights to bring back to their classrooms. From attending jazz workshops to conferences about racial justice, reading and writing, and world languages, we're proud to support teachers taking time from their summers to gain new knowledge!
Strategic Impact Grants
In January, The Schools Fund Board approved the last round of Strategic Impact Grants for 2016-17. This year's grants supported teacher professional development across grade levels and subjects, and almost $76,000 for arts programs and over $47,000 for STEM projects.
