Minnesota Venture Reward
Equity in education is something Venture Upward is committed to, which is why the Venture Reward was implemented. We strive to ensure that every student is equipped with the tools needed to be successful with the curriculum we provide through local district programs. Every student that enrolls in VIBE’s Online Program will receive a Venture Reward ($1,000 for grades K-8 ($500 each semester). This reward is designed to provide funding for families to purchase a laptop, tablet, or additional learning materials meant to enrich their student’s school year.
The Venture Upward ordering team, district teachers, and partner school principal must approve each Venture Reward order. Please keep in mind that any resources provided to families enrolled in the program are property of the district and must be returned if you decide to leave the program before the end of the school year. Please note: religiously-based curriculum or materials may not be purchased with your Venture Reward, including Abeka, Apologia, Sonlight, and others. Of course you are always welcome to purchase these on your own and continue working in them.
If you have any questions about what materials might be eligible for purchase with Venture Reward funds, please contact your teacher. If you do not yet have a teacher, you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
