Early education hopefuls have new opportunity through SVVSD grant

St. Vrain Valley School District’s Pathway to Teaching, or P-TEACH, program received a $100,000 grant from Early Milestones Colorado as part of the Early Childhood Workforce Innovation Grant. The grants were issued to support innovative changes in the early childcare industry after the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a press release.

SVVSD is one of six grantees across the state to receive funding to “pursue efforts toward strengthening Colorado’s early care and learning workforce,” stated the release. 

This is the third grant of its type that the district has received, according to Diane Lauer, district assistant superintendent of priority programs and academic support. The additional funding allows SVVSD to continue expanding the reach of its P-TEACH program.
