It's Grant Time!

Each year the Education Foundation of Odessa invites ECISD teachers to apply for funding for innovative classroom projects that will enhance the learning opportunities for our students. To date the Foundation has awarded more than $1.8-million to ECISD teachers through the grants program that has allowed them to make learning fun.

To kick-off the grant giving season, we were able to surprise the teachers, students and parents of Dr. Lee Buice Elementary earlier this month to award two grants to Jessica Rickman and Valerie Mendoza for their grants titled "You're Hired!" in the amount of $2,009.60 and "Teaching Like It's 2099" in the amount of $1,757.56.

On May 20-21, the Education Foundation will host its annual "Grant Giveaway" event to award more than $156,000 to ECISD teachers! We encourage you to join us on either day. Please call our office for more details (432.456.7059).
