The Foundation awards Teacher Mini-Grants for innovative classroom projects each year. Projects enrich current curriculum and create opportunities for students and teachers that would not otherwise be funded. This year, through the commitment and generosity of the Foundation 26 mini-grants were funded for a total of $100,000.
The Teacher Certification Reimbursement Program assist current employees in securing appropriate teaching certification in identified shortage areas in the district (Career and Technical Education, Bilingual Education, Math, Special Education plus Content, ESL) by providing financial assistance for course preparation, to include Alternative Certification Programs.
Barry Stevens ExCITES Scholarships help facilitate the post-secondary needs of both associates degree and industry certifications in career and technical fields for students seeking occupations in high demand jobs as listed by the Alamo Workforce Commission as most needed skilled workers in the San Antonio and surrounding communities.
Monetary donations made to the East Central School Foundation not identified for a particular Foundation established project by the donor will be considered a General Contribution that the Foundation Members will designate to the projects most in need of financial support.
