Through our Classroom Innovation Grants, we help teachers and students embrace new ways of learning, solving problems, and working together. Staff of the BCSD are invited to apply for grants of up to $1000 to provide innovative offerings in their classrooms, which otherwise would not be supported by the school district's budget.
