THE TRUESCHOOL COMMUNITY MICRO-INVESTMENT APPROACH

This year’s TrueSchool Fellows have contributed tremendous time, energy, and ideas. In total, our 164 Fellows have dedicated over 16,400 hours to designing, testing, scaling, and sharing innovative learning models. This year’s cohort focused specifically on the opportunity area: how might we dramatically improve early literacy achievement in our school?

Learn about, recognize, and reward the great work of this year’s TrueSchool Fellows!

Why Micro-Investments?

Through our unique “crowd-investment” approach, we are distributing decision-making for how tens of thousands of dollars will be invested. We believe educators and local community members know best. They decide where this money goes based on the schools they think will achieve the greatest impact for students.

The schools you select as the top investees will also be:

  • invited to attend the 2020 TrueSchool National Convening as speakers

  • published as model case studies shared with a global network of education leaders

  • eligible to receive additional programmatic and financial support

How Do I Participate As a TrueSchool Community Investor

To participate, you need a TrueSchool Team or Community Micro-Investment Voucher with a unique, personal code.

Every TrueSchool Team receives a voucher to invest in the work of their colleagues. District leaders and local community members have also received vouchers. If you have not received a voucher and would like to serve as a community investor, please make your request here.

Between May 15th-31st, our TrueSchool Micro-Investment Portal will be active. Return to this page to review the work of 2018-2019 TrueSchool Fellows and make your investment decision.
