Education Ideas for the Future. From Those Who Know Best.

No one knows more about what our schools need than those who are in the classroom. PCEF created the Teacher Voice Project in 2016, bringing a small group of teachers together to provide feedback on PCEF's granting process. This eventually grew into the Innovation Lab.
Innovation Lab is PCEF's newest program. We are bringing our educators and thought leaders together to workshop concepts to shape education in Park City. In the spring of 2023, we hosted our first ever Ideas for Impact Educator Summit! This idea, born out of our Innovation Lab workshops, brought together over 100 PCSD educators to exchange ideas, best practices, and learn about PCEF-funded programs across the district. Check out the photos below.
Our users are educators! Innovation Lab will provide feedback from these users. By creating more opportunities to engage, listen, and build relationships, we can ultimately create greater impact in the classroom.
PCEF DONOR IMPACT
The Innovation Lab was born out of the PCEF Teacher Voice Project. The Lab started in 2020 with seed funding from a donor-directed gift, and had to immediately be put on hold due to the pandemic.
Three years later, we were thrilled to hold our first in person event for all PCSD educators March, thanks to donor support. The Ideas for Impact Educator Summit was a resounding success!
