Education Foundation Funds $49,364 in Grants for Keller ISD

Education Foundation Funds $49,364 in Grants for Keller ISD

The Keller ISD Education Foundation awarded grants totaling $49,364.80 to 18 educators across the District on January 9 and 12. These grants provide funding for projects not covered by the normal operating budget that stimulate students’ creativity and expand the existing curriculum.

Teachers, counselors, librarians and nurses were eligible to submit grant proposals that offered innovative and creative approaches to identified classroom needs or special student-based projects.

Along with Education Foundation board members, district officials, sponsors and the high schools’ drum lines, the KISD Education Foundation’s “Prize Patrol” traveled from campus to campus, surprising educators with grants. Through donations, contributions and the annual Gala in the spring, the Foundation is able to distribute and award these grants.

“We would like to thank all KISD teachers and staff for their hard work and dedication to our students,” said John Baker, KISD Education Foundation Chair. “The Foundation truly appreciates the efforts of these highly motivated, professional and creative educators.”
