November 14, 2019

On November 12, the San Angelo Schools Foundation held its fourth annual Grants To Teachers Awards Ceremony at the ASU LeGrand Alumni and Visitors Center. The Grants to Teachers program works to support SAISD teachers by providing classroom grants and all-campus grants with the hope of enriching the education of SAISD students. The Schools Foundation has been awarding teacher grants since 1989. 

Representatives from the Foundation awarded grants to 144 SAISD teachers from 25 different campuses, with Bonham and Holiman Elementary Schools and Central Freshman Campus receiving all-campus grants. This year’s total amount awarded was $86,751. 

Since the inception of the Grants to Teachers program, the Schools Foundation has awarded over $581,000 in grants to SAISD teachers. 

With the help of the Schools Foundation grant money, SAISD teachers in all grade levels have found interesting and imaginative ideas for enhancing learning in core academic subjects, and the creative arts, in ways that inspire and motivate students. San Angelo ISD is grateful to the Schools Foundation for their continued support.
