On November 30, 2016 the Bullard Education Foundation put on their capes and landed at each campus of Bullard ISD to present nearly $42,000 in innovative grants to teachers and staff. A total of 20 grants were issued during the 2016 Grants for Excellence event. All six Bullard ISD campus received grant awards, meaning the entire district student body will benefit from innovative teaching tools, resources and hands-on applications provided by these grants. "This marks our eighth year of awarding innovative teaching grants, and the staff of Bullard ISD has once again come up with some awesome innovative ways of teaching 'outside the box'" stated BEF President, Tisha White. This is our 8th year and in that time we have awarded just under $332,000 back to BISD schools, teachers and students.
"Grant Day is an awarding day for so many. Our Education Foundation members work diligently all year to raise funds for this day and seeing the smiles on the faces of the students and district employees is priceless. We've stayed true to our mission and hope that we are continuing to positively affect this district and community" continued White.
In order for a grant request to qualify for awarding, it must innovative, researched, have significant impact on student learning, and not be eligible for normal district funding.
