Education Matters teacher grants - instructional edition

We’re Pleased to Announce the 2020 Education Matters Teacher Grants Recipients!

We’d like to thank the hundreds of educators, administrators and classified staff who submitted grant applications this year. Their passion for teaching - and dedication to student success - was evident in every grant request we received.
