Great Rewards for Great Ideas Program

Dear LISD Teachers, Counselors, Librarians and Nurses:
 
In 1994, a cross-section of community members who support the Longview Independent School District created the Longview ISD Foundation, Inc. to enrich and maximize the quality of classroom education in the Longview Independent School District.  The Foundation's Board of Directors, businesses, corporations, community members and LISD employees who support the Foundation believe that creative and innovative approaches to teaching can benefit our students and increase student achievement.  Because of this belief, the Foundation has created a permanent endowment fund to provide annual funding for the Great Rewards for Great Ideas Grant Program.
 
The 2022-2023 Great Rewards for Great Ideas Grant Program will fund creative teaching approaches and innovative projects with the hope that the best ones will serve as pilot projects for broader implementation.  Funding not otherwise available for such projects will be funded from $100 up to $2,500.

The committee will consider how compatible the project/program is with the district’s goals, the school’s or department’s mission or philosophy, campus improvement plan, or district improvement plan.  Please consult your fellow teachers, principal, technology specialists, or curriculum leaders for ideas or needs for your instructional program and students.
 
Please remember that Foundation board members who read the grants and determine the recipients are community members, business representatives, parents, and alumni.  Please make certain that your application reflects your best work and best represents Longview ISD to the public.
 
To assure anonymity, the cover page of the application remains in the Foundation office and is replaced only after the committee has identified the winning grants by the assigned application numbers.
 
Please read the guidelines and policies before beginning. 

You may submit a paper copy to the Foundation office at the Education Support Center or submit an online application at www.lisdfoundation.org.  Please send your paper copy and any attachments to Kay Ray, Executive Director, at Longview High School.

If you have any questions, please contact me at 903-452-7015 or email me at gray@lisd.org or at gloriakayray@gmail.com.
 
The Foundation looks forward to receiving many grant applications from across the district and is proud to provide funding for the twenty-eighth annual Great Rewards for Great Ideas Grant Program.

Application Deadline for the 2022-2023 Academic Year is Tuesday, November 1, 2022.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Kay Ray
Executive Director
