Teaching Innovation Fund


The Andover Coalition for Education (ACE) was launched over 15 years ago with the mission of partnering with the Andover Public Schools to support innovative system-wide initiatives that will inspire our students to succeed in facing today’s global challenges. Recently, our support has included district-wide initiatives that have introduced Maker Spaces at the elementary schools and initiated a Global Pathways program at the high school.

As ACE continues to grow and seeks to deepen our impact, we are thrilled to launch a new initiative that will complement our district-level support. This initiative – the ACE Teaching Innovation Fund– aims to support teacher-driven projects and projects that enhance the curriculum. ACE recognizes that Andover teachers are immensely talented and creative, and looks forward to supporting teachers as they make a difference for our students.
