Education Foundation Awards $81,000 to Royse City ISD 

The Royse City ISD Education Foundation is a non-profit organization that exists to enrich and enhance the education provided in the Royse City ISD Schools. On Thursday, November 7, 2019, directors and donors made surprise visits to campuses to award the 2019 Innovative Teaching Grants for a total of $49,628.80. In addition, the Foundation has awarded $12,000 to Royse City ISD for Bulb Digital Portfolios for students, $7,525.32 for smart boards to support the dyslexia program and $12,000 for additional special grants. 

“Grant Patrol is one of the best days of the school year for the Education Foundation and is only made possible through the generosity of the donors,” said Executive Director Kim Crumrine. “The Foundation’s Board of Directors are the individuals who help raise the funds each year and build relationships in the community that positively impact the 6,600 students served in Royse City ISD.”
