Big news for Alvin ISD teachers and staff! David Becker, President of the Alvin ISD Education Foundation, announced that the Alvin ISD Board would be funding all eligible grants this year.
In support of Alvin ISD staff, students and programs, 123 innovative teaching grants across 29 campuses were awarded virtually. This was an unprecedented move to award all grants totaling $106, 359.37. Grant funding comes through annual fundraising events, sponsors and donations.
Typically, grant presentation is a big celebratory affair. Board members, community partners, district administrator and band members all load a bus and travel school to school making a lot of noise to deliver the news. Due to social distancing, this years virtual winners wagon went throughout the district spreading news virtually.
David Becker announced, “we support teachers and grants and are excited to see all these grants in action next year.”
Congratulations to all the wonderful Alvin ISD staff who have worked hard in the interest of the students and community.
