Georgetown ISD Education Foundation Awards more than $34,000 in Collaborative Grants to Teachers
On Tuesday, April 26, the Georgetown ISD Education Foundation awarded $34,125 in collaborative grants to teachers in Georgetown ISD during a surprise grant patrol, consisting of Georgetown Education Foundation Board members, local business sponsors, and GISD administration.
The purpose of this program is to fund innovative and creative educational projects that align with the district’s Learner Profile and impact student learning.
“It’s rewarding to see the joy on teachers faces as they learn that their project has been funded,” said Greg Bowden, foundation board member. “The program was designed to allow teachers to submit innovative projects ideas, in collaboration with their peers, that might not otherwise be funded through the district’s budget.”
Thirteen grants were awarded to teachers from nine campuses. This is the sixth year for the foundation’s annual collaborative grant program.
