District-Wide Grants

SBEF grants benefit students across the district. They are as diverse as a district-wide spelling bee, tools for special educators (iPods for language development, for instance), J. Landon Short Mini-Grants for teachers who are exploring new best practices, and more. Grants support study trips and road shows for the Altharetta Yeargin Art Museum and field trips for first through eighth graders to experience Houston’s premier arts organizations. The award-winning SpringBoard mentoring program facilitates 500 mentors who connect with students on 25 campuses.
