The Caroll AP Boosters will once again help sponsor the exhibit.
The new year is off to a great start for Carroll ISD faculty. At the January 13 School Board Meeting, Trustees and Superintendent Dr. David Faltys accepted donations from two different district booster clubs to fund teacher grants.
The first check presentation was from the Southlake Association for the Gifted and Talented. SAGT, is a non-profit organization that partners with Carroll ISD to promote and encourage advanced academics in the district. The group presented Dr. Faltys with a check for $3, 851.90. The grants were requested from five Carroll ISD teachers including three elementary, one intermediate and one high school.
SAGT organizers say they are happy to partner with Carroll ISD and parents to support teachers and GT students in a number of ways including student and parent programs, helping to send teachers to TAGT conferences, student scholarships and teacher grants.
A second check presentation, this one from the Carroll AP Boosters, will fund a dozen teacher requests for enrichment grants. Some of the grants include participation in a STEM conference and iPads for art, psychology and science classes. The money will also pay for 5th and 6th grade social studies enrichment in history, cross-cultural, economics and geography.
A statement from the AP Boosters read, “We applaud our committed faculty for the passion and vision they have towards providing our children a true 21st Century education, and we, the AP Booster Club, are proud to play a small role in helping them provide the tools with which to do so.”
The booster club says they were able to raise 36% more money this year through a successful membership drive.
Regular Meetings of the Carroll ISD Board of Trustees are available to watch on demand through the district’s website. A video clip from the check presentation is below.
