Innovative Learning Grants
Each year, through the Innovative Learning Grants Program, the Hatboro-Horsham Educational Foundation awards grants to launch programs that will enrich the district’s curriculum and expand our students’ learning experiences. Inspired teachers and principals draw upon their classroom experiences to develop these groundbreaking programs, and all program proposals are carefully reviewed and selected by a committee comprised of HHEF board members, community members and school district administrators.
For 2019-20, the HHEF has awarded 20 Innovative Learning grants to 37 educators, totaling more than to $102,000.
