Joy and excitement filled the hallways of 18 Tyler ISD campuses and departments as the Tyler ISD Foundation Grant Patrol visited classrooms and offices to award more than $63,000 in grant funds through its Grants for Great Ideas program.
“This is always such a fun and inspiring event,” Betsy Jones, Tyler ISD Foundation director, said. “Our district educators have so many incredible ideas of programs to implement that ultimately create successful student outcomes. We are honored to help fund these programs so they can continue helping our students succeed each and every day.”
With the support of many generous donors and sponsors, 21 grants were awarded totaling $63,662.13, a significant increase from last year, impacting 18 campuses and departments and more than 7,500 students.
