Grants Awarded

The Floresville ISD Education Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019 Innovative Teaching Grants.  In September, the Foundation announced that it would fund grants submitted by FISD teachers and administrators for a variety of innovative programs and projects to support higher levels of student learning.
