For the second year in a row, Paul Revere Elementary has received a significant grant from the City's QTEA initiative.  The QTEA, or Quality Teacher & Education Act, is a 2008 San Francisco voter approved parcel tax measure which, among other things, "called for support for and recognition of schools modeling effective strategies and schools showing the most growth in student achievement."  Thanks to the very hard work of Lorraine Orlandi (our Community School Coordinator) and her team of grant writers, Paul Revere has received a significant grant in recognition of the work that the school is doing in this area.

The Impact and Innovation Awards aim to reward schools which have demonstrated achievement and to develop effective methods of sharing strategies that hard-working staff at these schools employ day-to-day to support student achievement. The awards program is two-fold:
  • Impact Awards: Recognize schools implementing effective practices that help move our students, staff and schools toward SFUSD’s Six Strategies for Success outlined in Impact Learning. Impact Lives.
  • Innovation Awards: Reward innovative practices which dare to achieve the Vision 2025 Essentials by providing winning schools with seed funding to incubate ideas and practices
This grant is not only a validation of the work that Lorraine and her team are doing, but it is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all the faculty and staff at Paul Revere show in the design and implementation of these programs.

Congratulations to all!
