SAGT, Carroll AP Boosters Present Annual Teacher Grants

SAGT, Carroll AP Boosters Present Annual Teacher Grants

Carroll ISD receives support in many ways. Two groups that support the district in maintaining academic excellence are the Carroll AP Booster Club and The Southlake Association of Gifted and Talented. Both of these non-profit organizations provide grants, donations and community support needed to advance teachers and students in their scholarly pursuits.

Recently, the Carroll AP Boosters and SAGT awarded grants to two dozen Carroll ISD faculty members. Board Members, Julie Doyle and Kelli Zenick presented SAGT grants to teachers during the Jan. 13 School Board Meeting.

“We are happy that we can partner with Carroll ISD and parents to support our GT teachers and students,” said SAGT President Julie Doyle. “In addition to the $5,388 we were able to award in teacher grants this year, SAGT also partnered with schools and PTO’s and paid $1,750 to help 14 GT teachers attend the annual TAGT conference in December.”

The Carroll AP Boosters also awarded grants recently, fulfilling 17 teacher requests for enrichment grants. There was a 14% increase in grant funds this year, do to a successful membership drive and a grant from IBM. In addition, the Carroll AP Booster Club will be offering several $1,000.00 Senior Scholarships in the spring which are funded through local community sponsorships. Details about the scholarship application process and due dates will be available next month.

“We are privileged to support our advanced academic teachers to enhance the educational opportunities of CISD students,” said AP Booster President Kelli Zenick. “We are proud to play a small role in providing our CISD teachers the additional resources needed for their classrooms and we appreciate the continued support of our membership and our community.”

This year SAGT will not only donate $7,500 in grants, the group will also host two Student Program events and six Parent Program events, as well as award a scholarship to a graduating senior. SAGT awarded partial or full grants to all teachers (8 total) who submitted grant applications. Grant requests totaled over $13,000.
