Education Foundation awards over $65,000 to LISD teachers

 CFES teachers surprised by grant giveaway


The Education Foundation for Lockhart ISD distributed 65 grants totaling over $65,000 to teachers today  to implement innovative programs to benefit LISD students.  This is the largest giveaway made by the Foundation to LISD teachers. 


Usually, the Foundation travels to campuses by bus to surprise teachers in their classrooms. Because of COVID-19 and the need for social distancing, Foundation board directors and district leadership instead surprised them in scheduled virtual “meetings” with their campus principals. 


“We are really happy that despite the restrictions we all live with right now, we were able to video conference with our teachers and present them with their grant awards for 2020. Our teachers are the backbone of our school district, and it is with tremendous pride and appreciation that we were able to award grants in excess of $65,000 to teachers across nine campuses of the Lockhart Independent school district,” said Education Foundation President Tim Clark. “This is made possible by the hard work of our board members, and by the generous support of our sponsors and donors. The Education Foundation proudly supports the teachers and students of LISD.”

“The support that the Education Foundation for Lockhart ISD provides our teachers each year through the annual grant giveaway is a game-changer for our students,” added Superintendent Mark Estrada. “Our teachers implement innovative instructional programs with the support of these grants, and when those programs show results, the district is able to scale those programs across the district to benefit even more students. The students in Lockhart ISD are at an advantage because of the support of our Education Foundation and the innovation by our amazing teachers.”
