The Longview ISD Foundation Announces the 2021 John W. Harrison, Jr. Academic Field Trip Grant for Fourth and Fifth Grade and Middle School Students
 
The 2021-2022 John W. Harrison, Jr. Academic Field Trip Grant will fund academic field trips for fourth and fifth grade students and middle school students directly related to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills and student expectations for the subject and grade.  Funding not otherwise available for such projects will be funded up to $7,000.00. 
 
The Foundation will partner with the campus’s PTA, PTO, campus community partner, or other campus funding source through the budget to ensure that the trip is funded as needed.
 
The academic field trip grants are due to Kay Ray, Foundation executive director, by Wednesday, October 13, 2021, so that funding can be granted by December 1 to facilitate campus winners making their travel plans for the spring semester.
 
Through the John W. Harrison, Jr. Academic Field Trip, elementary students have visited the Perot Museum in Dallas and NASA in Houston to enhance classroom learning in math and science while middle school students have visited the capitol building, the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library, the Bullock Museum of Texas History, and the Texas Military Museum in Austin.
 
The Foundation looks forward to receiving many grant applications from across the district and is proud to provide funding for this annual grant program.
