SFDRCISD Education Foundation
We want to encourage initiative and creative thinking, as well as reward those who have the work ethic and determination that we strive to instill in all of our students and staff.
The Foundation, with tremendous community support, was able to triple its grant awards for the 2015 – 2016 school year. With deepest appreciation for all dinner sponsors and guests, the Foundation is proud to announce this year’s “Innovative Teaching Grant” award winners.
