GARFIELD COUNTY School District #16 


History of the Teacher of the Year program (TOY)

In 2008, GVEF introduced the program to award the excellence of the teachers in Garfield County School District #16. Seeing the success of the program, we were able to expand to 4 teachers the following year 2009. Today the program recognizes the top 4 teacher awards; one to each school as well as the top classified person in the district. The amount of the awards consists of $1,000.00 to each teacher and $1,500.00 to their school. Totaling over $10,000.00 in support. This would not be possible without the generosity in funding received from the community as well as many local business sponsors.
