CPANA limits their area of funding to areas in Southern Lewisville and makes grant determinations that “spread the benefit over our entire neighborhood area, were permanent and tangible, did the most good, and fit with the spirit of our organization.” LEF appreciates the support of CPANA in furthering student success and classroom excellence in LISD. As LISD faces additional cuts in state funding, LEF continues to work hard in building outside support for our local schools.
