Since its founding in November 2005, ACE has granted over $800,000 to the Andover schools. Focused on innovation and impact, ACE funds initiatives with the potential for sustainability and scalability across the Andover school system. Our initiatives span the full spectrum of academic disciplines and vary based on need from year to year.
The vast majority of ACE initiatives are funded at the district level. These initiatives are identified through working closely with the Superintendent’s office and are fully vetted and reviewed by the ACE Board. In addition, a portion of our funding goes directly to teacher inspired ideas through the Teaching Innovation Fund.
