The Teacher Leadership Fund empowers educator-led innovation to address authentic classroom, school, and district challenges in service of student learning and well-being. Our mission is to:
- Create communities of educator-led innovation
- Provide diverse educators with access to resources to better serve our most marginalized students
- Celebrate, disseminate, and iterate new learning and promising practice
What is the Teacher Leadership Fund?
A new feature of the BTU-BPS Contract, The Teacher Leadership Fund awards grants of up to $15,000 to teams of educators. The fund puts resources directly into the hands of educators to work toward solutions to challenges in their schools or the district, especially those challenges that impact our most marginalized students. When educators discover promising solutions, the Teacher Leadership Fund will facilitate opportunities to share learning, ideas, or resources with other schools or educators who may face similar challenges.
