Three SMUHSD Schools Selected as Intrepid Philanthropy Foundation Grant Recipients

Capuchino, San Mateo and Aragon High Schools will be awarded $30K from the Intrepid Philanthropy Foundation. Launched last year, the Leveraging Innovation by Growing and Honoring Teachers (LIGHT) Awards program recognizes creative, innovative and passionate teachers looking to pursue high quality professional learning. All three schools will receive up to $30,000 over the next two years. Both Capuchino and San Mateo high schools will use the funding to focus on the needs of Spanish for Native Speaker students. Aragon High's Japanese program, chosen in partnership with three Bay Area schools, will put the funding toward creating multi-district world language teacher networks. Our schools were selected following a competitive grants process that resulted in only 10 awardees. Congratulations to the Capuchino, San Mateo and Aragon teams of dedicated teachers working on these worthy programs!
