Teacher Grants

Teachers are encouraged to write proposals for innovative classroom projects or programs that will benefit the entire campus and/or district.

The project objectives must improve student achievement and/or provide enrichment activities that support the Van Alstyne ISD mission. The projects must not currently be funded by Van Alstyne I.S.D. (i.e. textbooks and basic supplies), and they need to benefit a number of students.

Once the grant proposal is complete, the proposal should be signed and submitted to the campus  principal for his/her signature. Once completed, proposals can be turned in via email to VAEF Executive Director, Dacia McBryde by September 8, 2017.

All grant proposals will be screened by the appropriate administrators to determine their suitability for Van Alstyne ISD and to avoid duplication. The final selection will be made by the VAEF Teacher Grant Committee and the VAEF Board of Directors.

The application for 2017 Teacher Grants is NOW AVAILABLE!


Congratulations to the winners of VAEF's 2016 Teacher Grants!
