Quality Teacher Education Act - Impact Awards

Impact Awards - Background

The Quality Teacher and Education Act (QTEA), Proposition A of 2008, called for support for and recognition of schools modeling effective strategies and schools showing the most growth in student achievement. As part of this effort, SFUSD worked with UESF to establish the Impact and Innovation Awards. 

Now in it’s 8th year of implementation, the Impact Awards aim to support schools’ expansion of strategies that have accelerated student achievement and to develop ones to close persistent gaps. The Impact Awards recognize schools implementing effective practices that are demonstrated to move our students toward achieving competencies outlined in SFUSD’s Vision 2025 Graduate Profile.


Applications for the 23-24 Impact Awards will be posted here in August 2023
