Schools and educators receive $245,000 in Academic Opportunity grants
Providing opportunity to BVSD students reduces the economic barriers to success. Our Academic Opportunity Fund provides resources to educators and schools through grants that enable all students to fully engage in learning.
Highlights of our second 2022-23 funding round
In the second round of the school year we received 65 applications to our Academic Opportunity Fund. So far we’ve been able to fully or partially fund 47 applications, distributing $68,000 to educators across the district, while we explore district and partnering funding options for some additional applications.
If you include our final round from the last school year, you’ll see that in 2022 we’ve:
- funded 145 grants
- awarded over $245,123
- supported 38 schools
What our schools are requesting
From the latest round, we received a variety of classroom- and school-based applications from schools across the district, including funding requests for:
- a field trip to the Boulder Philharmonic’s Discovery Concert
- social justice books for a classroom library
- wobble stools to provide flexible seating and help high school students focus
- metal and jewelry supplies for an art class
- diversity, equity and inclusion e-book collections for the BVSD digital library
A strong tie to our mission
The Academic Opportunity Fund directly supports our mission, allowing us to provide supplemental funding and resources to students and educators in order to expand what’s possible in education.
