On November 29, 2017 the Bullard Education Foundation visited each campus of Bullard ISD to present nearly $38,000 in innovative grants to teachers and staff. A total of 16 grants were issued during the 2017 Grants for Excellence event. All six Bullard ISD campuses 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 ninth 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, Erin Thiem. This is our 9th year and in that time we have awarded just under $370,000 back to BISD schools, teachers and students.

"Grant Day is a favorite day of the year for so many. Our Education Foundation members work diligently all year to raise funds for this day and seeing the excitement of the students and district employees is priceless.  We are excited to see the creative, innovative ideas of the staff come to life and watch students learning expand in the coming months," continued Thiem.  

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.
