This award is designed to provide resources and guidance to help a school investigate and design a solution to an equity challenge facing the site. Schools do not initiate this process with a solution already in mind, but are provided with the coaching, resources and the expertise of the SFUSD iLab to enable a design process that brings them to an effective solution.
Innovation Awards Showcase
The Innovation Awards aim to reward schools which have demonstrated achievement and to help them develop innovative practices for hard-working staff at these schools to employ in support of student achievement. View a showcase of school projects or read past case studies.
This award is a much more traditional-style grant. Schools submit ideas, budgets and project plans to demonstrate how they would use funding to support a project or effort at their site. Ideas can range from sending teachers to learn Lesson Study to building leveled libraries to building capacity for inclusive practices.
