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.
The QTEA Impact Awards are designed to support schools who have already developed a project for which they seek funding.
Schools submit ideas, budgets and project plans to demonstrate how they would use funding to support a project or effort at their site and can secure up to $25,000 for this concept. Prior winning projects have included sending teachers to Japan to learn Lesson Study to building leveled libraries within a school site.
