North East educational foundation awards $161,000 in grants
The North East Educational Foundation (NEEF) distributed more than $161,000 to teachers and schools in NEISD in just two days.
Board Members surprised teachers and administrators with grants for 46 classroom projects on May 21 and 22. Teachers across the district applied for grants and were excited when Foundation Board Members showed up with giant checks.
At Coker Elementary, Susan Rendon and Adriene Long received $8,000 for a Coker Book Room. The school does not have a room like this on the campus with resources for every grade level, all in one place. This will impact everyone--teachers and students--on the campus.
Lee High School's Mark Hansen and Rachel Humphrey received $1,500 for a U.S. History EOC Success Pullout program. It makes history more interactive with quotes and lessons that bring history to life for high school students.
Grants are awarded based on need and how many students will be impacted through the project. For more information about the Foundation, click here.
