Hands-on, interactive learning opportunities will educate and inspire 7,216 CCISD students in this school year alone, thanks to 26 Grants for World Class Schools being awarded by the Corpus Christi Education Foundation (CCEF). Community professionals and board members from the CCEF traveled to 18 schools on Friday, December 6, 2013, to surprise educators at each campus with checks totaling $51,434.
Grant applications were received from across the district, submitted by more than 100 educators. Recipients were selected from those who desire to provide truly engaging learning experiences for their students, both within and beyond the walls of the classroom.
These grants are provided from the CCEF thanks to the support of many in the community who highly value the quality of education for CCISD students, including Coastal Community and Teachers Credit Union; the Corpus-Christi Caller-Times; NSIDE Coastal Bend Magazine; American Bank Center; Fulton-Coastcon; Linebarger, Goggan, Blair & Sampson LLP; and Stripes LLC.
