Less talk, more ACTION!
Once a year, we invite donors and community members out to see how the Education Foundation has positively affected teachers and students in College Station ISD. These "Grants in Action" are inspiring to everyone who participates!
In 2021, we are virtually highlighting exciting classroom projects that were funded this year through our Innovative Teaching Grant Program. Over $170,000 was invested in creative learning projects that benefit students at every campus! These are all made possible by generous community supporters like you!
Millions of books for thousands of students! Readers are blasting off with the SORA online book app recently funded through a district-wide grant! The mobile reading app empowers students and teachers, from PreK-12th grade, to access e-books and audiobooks from district devices or their own, and then check out books from the district or the public library…to read at home, at school, or from the moon! This chapter was generously sponsored by Caldwell Country Chevrolet.
