‘Tis the Season: McKinney Education Foundation Awards $61K in Classroom Grants

Submitted by Michele Garrison, MISD

Last week, students, teachers, and administrators were delighted as Santa surprised teachers at MISD schools with checks for McKinney Education Foundation classroom grants totaling over $61,000. These grants will underwrite unique academic programs not already funded by MISD.

Margaret Harsch, MEF Operations Director stated, “These grants give teachers the freedom to implement exciting initiatives that otherwise would go unfunded. During the season of giving, it’s especially fun to see the teachers’ responses and know how grateful they are to have been selected.  This is one of the best parts of my job!”

MISD classroom grants are awarded to MISD teachers or staff to fund innovative new programs that may test a pilot program, try a new technique, or involve students in a program outside the normal curriculum to enhance the classroom experience.  This program is largely funded by the more than 1,100 MISD staff members who contribute to the MEF Staff Fund via payroll deductions. Additionally, CoServ, ISA insurance, Rotary Club of McKinney Sunrise, Drs. K. Lyle and Sandra W. Froese, support the program with endowments which will perpetually support the MEF grants program.
