LEF AWARDS $100K TO LEWISVILLE ISD TEACHERS
Lewisville ISD Education Foundation Awards 64 Teacher Grants Across LISD
The Lewisville ISD Education Foundation (LEF) awarded 64 grants to teachers across the Lewisville Independent School District on Wednesday, Aug. 21. Teacher grants were awarded throughout all five LISD high school feeder patterns totaling $100,000.
For the third year in a row, the amount awarded in teacher grants increased. While equaling the number of teacher grants last year at 64, LEF awarded $7,000 more than last year, rising from nearly $93,000 to $100,000 in 2019. That growth is not possible without the support of the LISD community individuals, clubs and organizations, corporations and Lewisville ISD employees through employee giving.
The creative teachers of LISD earned grants covering the full scope of subjects: STEM-related learning, music, physics, robotics, social skills, books, and more.
Teacher grants ranged from $305 to as much as $2,500 with 14 grants awarded at the highest amount allotted. Additionally, 19 campuses were awarded two or more grants while, overall, teachers at 37 campuses across LISD saw LEF’s Grant Patrol show up with the good news. Hebron High School and Peters Colony Elementary led the way with four grants each.
