What is an Innovative Learning Grant? CBCEF resources
are distributed to support innovative learning programs
for the benefit of the students and complements the
curriculum while embracing innovative learning approaches
in the Central Bucks School District.

What does this mean to local educators? Plenty! It means
a project, a new approach, a new vision can move
forward in a classroom.
For a teacher, it doesn’t get
much better than that!
