Skinner Wins 2015 Foundations for Great Schools Award!

Skinner is so proud to announce that we have won a 2015 Foundations for Great Schools Award!
In 2015, Foundations for Great Schools recognized a total of 29 Denver metro-area public schools and awarded a total of $500,000 in grants.

The award recipients were selected based on a variety of factors, including academic performance and growth, high percentage of students qualifying for free and reduced lunch, school leadership, culture and instructional effectiveness. Elementary, middle, high school, public district, and public charter were all considered.

Skinner was awarded a $25,000 prize. The funds will help pay for professional development for Skinner’s incredible teaching staff. Skinner’s teachers will return to school a couple of days early for training.  Additionally, the award funds will allow Skinner to continue our long-standing relationship with PEBC to help our teachers continually strengthen their practice.  Another professional development tool we use at Skinner is Teach Like a Champion.  Skinner’s teachers are continually sharpening their skills using these and many other tools.
