Innovative Teaching Grants
The Sheldon ISD Education Foundation raises funds to directly support educators in the school district through the innovative teaching grant process. To date, the Foundation has awarded more than $81,000 in innovative teaching grants to Sheldon ISD educators.
"In 2019, the Sheldon Education Foundation generously awarded our C. E. King Middle School Library with a grant for books," said librarian Linda Yantis. "Because of this grant, we were able to order more than 300 popular paperback books to be distributed to students as gifts. This gift became even more important because in the spring of 2020 our schools closed. We were able to give books to our students during lunch pick-ups, and they were very appreciative to have fun, interesting books to read. I am so grateful to the Sheldon ISD Education Foundation, and I want them to know the students are grateful as well."
This school year's grant application process will open in early February 2021.
