The KCISDEF’s mission is to provide resources to enrich teaching, inspire learning, and provide opportunities for excellence in education. The teacher grants program allows teachers to apply for grants to help them in their classrooms. KCISD is under-funded compared to most schools in Texas and these grants will enable and encourage teachers to be innovative in their approach to teaching by incorporating materials outside the normal curriculum or teaching patterns.
Examples of previous grant items include: Smartboards, innovative curriculums, a Greenhouse, an outdoor science Habitat, hundreds of reading books, computers, cameras, and more. These items would otherwise not be available to KCISD students with the limited funding that the school district still receives from the state.
All KCISD teachers may apply for grant funding.
