Since 2001, the Foundation has given $1,666,000 to over 825 BISD educators through the Iinnovative Teacher Grant program. The Birdville Education Foundation awarded 44 grants totaling $116,051 for the 2019-2020 school year.
Thanks to the generous corporate and community donors through the Best for Birdville Annual Campaign and the generosity of our dedicated Birdville ISD staff donors, the Education Foundation will be awarding over $125,000 to deserving classrooms and campuses for the 2020-2021 school year.
The purpose of the Education Foundation Innovative Teaching Grants is to encourage and support the creation of innovative projects that will enrich the education and growth of all students in Birdville ISD. The Education Foundation provides funds to finance educational opportunities outside the scope of the regular operating budget of Birdville ISD and targets areas such as enrichment of curriculum and instruction in the classroom, in the school, professional development and teacher learning, student leadership, school and community collaboration, and community participation in all aspects of education.
