The grant awards will impact thousands of Allen ISD students and every campus in the district.

“We are very excited to again fund such a large number of grants,” said Regina Taylor, Director of the Foundation. “Nearly 200 of our teachers and staff will be involved next year; these grants will have an impact on every curriculum area and in classrooms from Pre-K to 12th grade.” Teachers and staff submitted 200 applications for 2020-2021; 68% were awarded funding.

The Foundation’s Educational Grant Program provides resources for innovative, creative classroom and campus programs and projects.
