Two Rivers School wins $50K Daniels grant

Two Rivers Community School, a public charter school serving 212 students from Rifle, Silt, New Castle and Glenwood Springs, has been awarded a $50,000 grant from the Daniels Fund in Denver.

Two Rivers Community School, now in its second year, is a free public charter school authorized from the Colorado Charter School Institute. The school, founded by a group of community members, parents, teachers and administrators, offers K-8 education in a small-school environment.

Two Rivers is based on the nationally recognized Place Based Learning curriculum combined with platforms. The combination of these two learning designs is called Place Based Projects. In addition, the school emphasizes goals specific to engaging family involvement, multicultural understanding, the power of diversity and a strong Spanish language/literacy program, offering Spanish instruction in math and literacy in grades K-3. Students enrolled at the school are representative of the diversity of the Roaring Fork Valley.

This grant from the Daniels Fund will enable the purchase of tables, chairs, carpet and other miscellaneous improvements such as installing doors in some classrooms.

The Daniels Fund, established by cable television pioneer Bill Daniels, is a private charitable foundation dedicated to making life better for the people of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming through its grants, scholarship program and ethics initiative.
