The education community is developing a collaborative project aimed at pairing businesses and school projects to benefit the future generation.
b-Cubed, a pilot program, was recently introduced as a model to allow special projects developed by Benicia teachers to receive funding from Benicias business community.
“Often, teachers raise the money on their own,” said Adriene Rockwell, Benicia Unified School Districts grant writer. “This is a way to let them focus on what they do best, teach.”
Still in its early stages, b-Cubed features innovative projects that have been selected by the school and district administrations, which would hopefully be adopted by a local business for funding.
