On the evening of Sept. 10, the Junior League of Dallas, along with presenting sponsor Texas Instruments, awarded 50 Dallas Independent School District educators with grants of up to $2,000 each through the annual Grants for Innovative Teaching program.
Since 1992, this JLD Signature Project has awarded more than $1.9 million to Dallas ISD educators and is designed to encourage excellence in education by funding special projects addressing: reading and literacy enrichment; diversity; special education; science, technology, engineering and math (STEM); or arts and culture enrichment across one or more grade levels.
This year, more than $92,000 was distributed to fund deserving educators’ winning projects. Other sponsors include the Agnes Cluthe Oliver Foundation.
