2017-2018 TEACHER GRANT PROGRAM
Awards:  
The SAGT Grants Committee is pleased to announce we have presented a check to the School Board in the amount of $17,222 to be applied directly to the enrichment of the CISD GT community!  
This year SAGT awarded 15 teacher grants, totaling $13,442. This is the largest Grant disbursement in the history of SAGT. These funds directly enhance, enrich and contribute to the creative instruction our GT students. SAGT also provided $3,780 so that 14 CISD teachers’ attendance at the 2017 TAGT (Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented) conference in Houston. This conference provided continuing education and new, creative ideas for GT instruction. Teachers returned charged and refreshed! 
 
Thank you so much to the SAGT Grant Committee, Alyce Ohser and Lisa Fraga, for their many hours of collecting grant requests, reviewing the requests and disbursing funds. This amazing contribution to the CISD GT program would not have been possible without the generous dues and donations of SAGT Members. Thank you so much for your financial support. You have made a true difference in the lives of our children by enhancing their appropriate education.
