This is a foundation sponsored event and not considered staff development. It is highly encouraged for first time grant writers or those who have not had success in the past.

The Education Foundation awards mini-grants once a year to educators for campus or classroom projects to enhance student success. Applications are scored by readers and then screened by a selection committee made up of foundation board members. Applications are accepted for up to $5000.

The Pasadena ISD Education Foundation has been created to support educational programs for both the students and staff of the district. The foundation provides funds for educational programs and activities which either have not been funded or have been under-funded by the normal operating budget.
Distributed to teachers who apply in the form of mini-grants, the funds are used to facilitate innovative teaching strategies, energize student achievement and skill development, recognize and encourage staff excellence and expand community involvement from individuals, businesses and civic organizations.
