Since 1997, the Classroom of the Future Foundation (CFF) has united business, community, and educational leaders to create innovative learning environments in San Diego County public schools. CFF, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization works to advance its mission by ensuring that San Diego students are prepared to thrive in a competitive global society.

CFF is an extension of the San Diego County Office of Education and is known for being the convener of business, community, and educational leaders around innovation in education in our region. Moreover, CFF is a catalyst and champion for the creation of learning programs that apply proven business and technology-based practices in the school setting. CFF is also a trusted resource for school districts, and a thought leader on innovation in the classroom.

Following an intensive application and selection process for our Innovation Grant Program, four classroom programs will be recognized at the event for their ability to get students excited about learning and enhance learning outcomes through the effective use of technology. Each classroom awardee will receive a financial grant of $5,000 to help scale this innovative program in their school district.
