LEISD Education Foundation Surprises Grant Winners

LEISD EF Grant Winner At Oak Point

Last month, more than 80 grant applications poured into the Little Elm ISD Education Foundation for a chance to receive grant money to enhance learning in a classroom or at a campus. Over a two day period, several LEISDEF Board members and volunteers read each application and used a rubric to grade each one they read. The competition was tough this year as teachers stated their case to use grant money to fund their innovative ideas. In the end, 22 teachers and staff were awarded a collective $23,798 in grant money.
