Grants of $500 to Ventura County, California K-12 teachers and educators and grants of $750 to teams of educators to support innovative educational projects. The deadline to register is February 23. This program emphasizes student learning, creativity, and seeks to reward educators who think outside ether box. Further, the program attracts public attention to the positive aspects of the county’s educational system.

The purpose of IMPACT II is to spread excellent teaching ideas throughout the county. Recognizing innovative teachers at an awards dinner provides an opportunity to celebrate the true heroes and heroines in local communities. Over the years Ventura County IMPACT II has matured into the program envisioned at its inception. Business leaders, teachers, and administrators are becoming aware of the program and are participating in unprecedented numbers.

The Ventura County IMPACT II program is a partnership between the Ventura County Office of Education, the Ventura County Star and several local organizations. IMPACT II is cost effective. The County Education Office funds the day-to-day operation of IMPACT II, so contributions go directly to teachers and classrooms for student projects. IMPACT II puts cutting edge classroom projects into the mainstream, turning students on to learning. IMPACT II enables excellent teaching ideas to reach all teachers in the county, and raises community awareness of exemplary classroom practices. IMPACT II boosts teacher morale by recognizing innovative teaching as well as enhancing teacher professionalism through local/national training and teacher presentations.
