Working with the Data Department and the Academic Innovation Department, we managed to make the finals of the XQ Grant - a 10 Million Dollar grant for innovation in High Schools. While we did not win the grant, it was an honor to make it to the finals and a learning experience for all of us. I got write a grant, speak in a video, and stay up until midnight to make sure everything was right before we submitted our grant information. It was definitely exciting and worth it! Here's the video that we submitted in case you missed it: Here we are getting ready to submit - after 10 hours of work...yes...it's minutes before midnight!
