2020-2021 TEACHER GRANT PROGRAM
2020-2021 SAGT Teacher Grants Awarded
The SAGT Grants Committee is pleased to announce that we presented a check to the CISD School Board on December 14 in the amount of $11,453 to be applied directly to the enrichment of the CISD GT community!
This year, SAGT awarded 9 teacher grants totaling $7,653 to teachers at Rockenbaugh, Durham, Eubanks, Carroll Middle, and Carroll High School. The money will be used to support gifted students, including those Face to Face and in the Dragon Virtual Academy, with items including standing desks, alternative seating, a watershed pollution model, microscope cameras, a Scholastic magazine subscription, and coding and writing software.
In addition, SAGT contributed $3,800 for registration fees to help send 15 Carroll ISD teachers to the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented GiftED conference, which was held virtually this year. This conference provided continuing education and new, creative ideas for GT instruction for both the physical and virtual classroom.
This 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, especially in these challenging times. You have made a true difference in the lives of our children.
