School on the Move Prize Ceremony

Each fall, EdVestors hosts the Thomas W. Payzant School on the Move Prize to honor the bright spots in Boston Public Schools and celebrate the hard work of teachers and school leaders who have significantly improved outcomes for their students. We share the stories of how schools improve to help more schools make significant progress. The prestigious School on the Move Prize comes with a $100,000 award, public recognition, and the opportunity for the winning school to document and share replicable strategies.

The 2019 School on the Move Prize Ceremony will take place on Thursday, October 31st at the InterContinental Boston. The 300 guests that attend the Ceremony each year share a deep commitment to closing opportunity and achievement gaps and building Boston’s future.

Register for this year’s event!

Sponsorship of the School on the Move Prize Ceremony offers an inside look at urban education and a seat at the table with Boston’s leading minds in school improvement. Investment in EdVestors’ School on the Move Prize is an investment in the next generation of Boston’s leadership and workforce.

Please join us in being a part of what is working in the Boston Public Schools.
