Education Foundation Gives $50,000 in Grants to CCISD Teachers

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Corpus Christi Independent School District teachers received a big surprise on Friday -- money for programs they are implementing in their schools.

Teachers at five different schools received $50,000 worth of grants from the Education Foundation. They raise money through Broadway shows that come through town at the American Bank Center.

Librarians at Rose Shaw Elementary School were surprised with money for iPads that they want to buy for their students.

"We're super excited, and I know the kids will be more excited than we are, and it's a way to make learning fun and it will be great," Librarian Lauren Thorpe said.

Education Foundation members will come back in the spring to see the programs in action.
